Pig iron – An indispensable component in the smelting process
Pig iron is obtained by reducing iron ore in a blast furnace. It has an iron content of up to 95%.
Cast in ingots of around 8-15 kg, it is an essential part of the melt in the foundry industry due to its precisely defined analysis.
Since 1972, Richard Anton KG has been supplying a wide variety of pig iron qualities for the common types of casting from Russia, Ukraine and Brazil among others:
