Granulation of Pig Iron in Integrated Steelmaking
In integrated steelmaking, the GRANSHOT® metal granulation process is used to handle excess iron. It is an industrial and high capacity process, up to 360 tonnes/hour. The GRANSHOT unit provides an outlet for hot metal, optimizing the stability of the iron making process which is highly beneficial for campaign life as well as raw material consumption. The GRANSHOT unit has a small footprint and requires less labour and maintenance to be in operation. The Granulated Pig Iron, GPI is a highly interesting product since it can be easily handled both manually and automatically and reused into BF, BOF, EAF, IF etc.
