  Pig iron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pig iron is typically poured directly out of the bottom of the blast furnace into pots to form ingots.
As pig iron is intended for remelting, the uneven size of the ingots and inclusion of a little sand was unimportant compared to the ease of casting and of handling.
Cast iron is made by remelting pig iron, often along with substantial quantities of scrap iron, and taking various steps to remove undesirable contaminants and adjust the carbon content.

 Iron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Iron is notable for being the final element produced by stellar nucleosynthesis, and thus the heaviest element which does not require a supernova or similarly cataclysmic event for its formation.
A newer variant of grey iron, referred to as 'ductile iron' is specially treated with trace amounts of magnesium to alter the shape of graphite to sheroids, or nodules, vastly increasing the toughness and strength of the material.
A class of non-heme iron proteins is responsible for a wide range of functions within several life forms, such as enzymes methane monooxygenase (oxidizes methane to methanol), ribonucleotide reductase (reduces ribose to deoxyribose; DNA biosynthesis), hemerythrins (oxygen transport and fixation in marine invertebrates) and purple acid phosphatase (hydrolysis of phosphate esters).

 Pig iron   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Pig iron is raw iron in an ingot form.
It is the immediate product of smelting iron ore with coke and limestone in a blast furnace - a hard but brittle mix of iron (90% or more) and carbon (typically 4-5%), manganese, sulfur, phosphorus, and silicon (roughly 3% in total).
The row of molds was said to resemble a litter of suckling pigs, hence the individual ingots were referred to as pigs and the runner was called the sow.

Pig iron has a very high (An abundant nonmetallic tetravalent element occurring in three allotropic forms: amorphous carbon and graphite and diamond; occurs in all organic compounds) carbon content, typically 4-5%, which makes it very brittle and not very useful directly as a material.
Pig iron is typically poured directly out of the bottom of the blast furnace into pots to form (A block of metal that is cast in a particular shape for convenient handling) ingots.
(An alloy of iron containing so much carbon that it is brittle and so cannot be wrought but must be shaped by casting) Cast iron is made by remelting pig iron, often along with substantial quantities of scrap iron, and taking various steps to remove undesirable contaminants and adjust the carbon content.

 Pig Iron's Name
The furnaces were built and operated for the purpose of extracting iron from the native iron ores.
The molten iron was cast into bars called "pigs"; hence, the common name of "pig iron." The name pig iron is meaningless to non-farm people, as it is a figment of the imagination of the blast furnace workers--all of whom were very familiar with the keeping of pigs.
As they looked at the molten iron flowing from the hearth in the base of the furnace stack, the trench of red iron with the many short side branches made them think of a sow (the large feeder trench) and pigs (the end result).

 Pig Iron
Pig Iron is a principal component of the charge make-up used by high quality ferrous foundries and steel mills.
An alloy of iron and carbon, Pig Iron is manufactured from iron ore in either a blast furnace or electric arc furnace smelting process, and is used to provide metallurgical control over base iron and final melt chemistries of iron and steel melting operations.
For Gray Iron foundries and Steel mills, Miller sources and distributes Pig Iron from producers in the U.S., South America and Eastern Europe.

 Encyclopedia: Pig iron
Wrought iron is a very pure form of commercial iron, having a very small carbon content.
Steel is a metal alloy whose major component is iron, with carbon being the primary alloying material.
Cast iron usually refers to grey cast iron, but can mean any of a group of iron-based alloys containing more than 2% carbon (alloys with less carbon are carbon steel by definition).

May 24: Following the footsteps of Indian Iron and Steel Company (Iisco), all major pig iron producers in the eastern region have increased their pig iron prices used by foundries to Rs 200 per tonne with effect from April 6, 1998.
He further said Indian Iron and Steel Company or the other manufacturers have not yet explained any reason so far for this price hike which apparently is very nominal.
But what is worrying industry is that an extra burden of Rs 2.16 crore has to beborne by it, taking the total consumption of pig iron by the local industry to 9 lakh tonnes per annum, the foundry owner said.

 American Metal Market: China, US interests eye Brazil pig iron project
Siderurgica do Para (Cosipar) is holding talks with three Chinese steelmakers as well as with U.S. pig iron consumers on setting up a partnership for the projected third-phase expansion of the company's new Usina Siderurgica do Para (Usipar) pig iron project in northern Brazil.
Usipar this month completed ground breaking for the project and started construction work on phase one of the plant, which should be producing 500,000 tonnes of pig iron a year by mid-2005 using two charcoal-based blast furnaces, Monteiro said.
Monteiro said that Usipar's second phase, which should involve a Chinese partner, would expand the pig iron exporter's capacity to 1.5 million tonnes a year using three more furnaces based on coke and iron ore sinter feed.

In Reply to: Pig Iron Underwater posted by David Stegall on November 12, 2000
When they took the pig iron out of the molds they would put the pig iron in water to cool it off.
So when something is described as "pig iron underwater" the speaker means that it is safe, secure and there is no question as to what it is. Sort of like "it's in the bank".
