Refining Nickel Pig Iron
Posted Wednesday, May 15th 2013
The management of PT. Indoferro have said that they have placed an order for a one hundred tonne EAF to further refine the composition of their nickel pig iron and increase the nickel contents to 10.0% and above.
The furnace should be delivered and installed by the first quarter of 2014 and will further allow the production of much higher grades of nickel pig iron with very low levels of impurities such as phosphorous.
The management said that their new blast furnace was running well and the sales of nickel pig iron are meeting their targeted expectations.
