Pig Iron

Voltcon International engaged in Export, OEM Manufacturing & Marketing of Foundry Grade Pig Iron of steel through secondary route in India, fulfilling the steel needs of almost industry in this region.

Pig iron is a form of iron that is produced by melting iron ore along with charcoal and limestone under very high pressure.

Pig iron is an intermediate product of the iron industry. Pig iron has a very high carbon content, typically 3.5-4.5%, along with silica and other constituents of dross, which makes it very brittle, and not useful directly as a material except for limited applications. Pig iron is made by smelting iron ore into a transportable ingot of impure high carbon-content iron in a blast furnace as an ingredient for further processing steps

Thus it is brittle and unstable that can't be used in this form. However, it is refined through further melting and blending to wrought iron and steel which are together most widely used materials on earth.
The different grades of Pig Iron we manufacture are
1. Steel Grade Pig Iron; and
2. Foundry Grade Pig Iron.
The Pig Iron manufactured at our units is distinct due to its low levels of Sulphur and Phosphorous. Low levels of these elements reduce the costs associated with desulphurization for furnace owners and help them with flexibility in preparing charge mixes. Further, the use of this product manufactured by our Company ensures high quality castings, free from defects due to low levels of impurities and intrusions. Consistent and appropriate levels of carbon and silicon help in providing excellent machineability of castings.
