Other Bulk Steel-making Raw Materials

The company from time to time is also involved in Liasoning and Under-writing of major Steel-making Bulk Products for its strong markets and regular clients in other areas of the Steel Value Chain. Our product offering includes the follows:-

  • Hot Briquetted Iron
    Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) is a premium form of Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) that has been compacted at a temperature greater than 650° C and has a density greater than 5000 kilograms per cubic meter (5000 kg/m3). HBI is a premium quality, high density steel industry raw material containing 90-94% total iron (Fe), used in electric arc furnaces (EAF) and basic oxygen furnaces (BOF), blast furnaces (BF) and foundry applications. Designed for ease of shipping, handling, and storage, it is used in steel-making as a substitute for higher priced scrap metal. Because of its high iron content and low residual levels, HBI can be used in almost every type of steelmaking operation. It also has advantages over steel scrap due to its high bulk density and the very low content of undesirable chemical elements.
  • DRI (Direct Reduced Iron) or Sponge Iron Pellets
    Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) is a metallic material produced from direct reduction-oxidation of iron ore using a reducing gas (a chemical transformation process that removes Oxygen and Carbon without reaching the melting point of iron). It usually contains between 90 and 94% total iron and low amounts of residuals. It is used in the production of steel, primarily in electric arc furnace mini-mills to increase their efficiency, among other advantages, by diluting the impurities contained in the scrap metal used in this process.
  • Pig Iron
    Merchant pig iron comprises three main types: Basic Pig Iron, used mainly in electric arc steelmaking, Haematite Pig Iron [also known as Foundry Pig Iron], used in mainly in the manufacture of grey iron castings in cupola furnaces, and Nodular Pig Iron, used in the manufacture of ductile [also known as nodular or spheroidal graphite - SG] iron castings. We can deliver pig iron in virtually any specialty composition as requested by the customer. We trade in basic pig iron for steelmaking, as well as foundry and ductile pig iron for the castings industry. Most of our supply is from Brazil, which is the largest exporter of pig iron worldwide
