Foundry and Basic (or steel-making) Grade Pig Irons are some of the principal charge materials for the production of gray iron. These pig irons come with certified analysis, consistent and uniform shape, and good recovery of carbon and silicon. Pig iron has a lower melting point than that of steel scrap. A lower melting point combined with a denser charge make-up result in lower energy requirements and faster melting time when compared to that of an all steel charge make-up.
Miller and Company has extensive experience in assisting foundries with reviewing and establishing proper charge make-up to include the use of Foundry Grade or Basic Pig Iron. Miller and Company has contacts throughout the world and is able to provide products from a variety of sources, including DK Recycling, Duisburg Germany.
