Modern processes in the manufacturing of steel

The methods of steel manufacturing evolved significantly with the beginning of industrial production at the end of the 19th century. However, modern methods are based on Bessemer process. According to the World Steel Association, in 2011, raw steel production reached a new record of 1.527 billion metric tons. Of these, about two-thirds were made using […]

History of steel

Steel is an alloy of iron and other elements: carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, traces of oxygen, nitrogen and aluminum. Carbon and the other alloy elements act as a hardening agent. Steel has carbon content below 2.11%; iron-carbon alloys containing carbon over 2.11%  are called cast iron. The history of steel begins in ancient times. […]

What is calm steel?

Steel made in furnaces or converters is poured into steel molds (special molds made of cast iron), where it cools and solidifies. When it is poured into steel molds and the iron oxide content is too high, the steel shows the “boiling” phenomenon, which leads to the production of gas inclusions as structural defects. The […]

How much silicon should steel have for galvanization?

To obtain a uniform galvanized layer in terms of thickness and quality, the following values should not be exceeded in the steel composition: silicon (0.12% -0.25%), phosphorus (max. 0.25%), carbon (max. 0.2%), and manganese (max. 1.5%). In metallurgy, it is known that silicon (Si) and phosphorus (P) are elements normally added to steel to improve […]
