 Casting of the hot metal as slabs at casters . .  Metallic iron.  Melting process. The arc is struck between the graphite Cathode and the liquid steel. HBI.Steel Making Process  Depending upon the quality of the steel required a particular ratio of raw iron ore and the pellets approximately 60:40 or 70:30 are charged in to the hopper of the vertical shaft furnace.  The capacity of EAF is maximum 150 ton. Steel scrap and Hot DRI are fed in to the Electric arc furnace as raw material.  Refined and alloy additions in the ladle furnace are made.

 Three graphite electrode are immersed in to the furnace to maintain the temperature and argon gas is purged from the bottom to prevent the re -oxidation of the steel.  Vacuum de-gassing.  Molten steel passes through the oscillating copper mould.  Two continuous casters are present. Finally a slab is formed. . which is coated with nickel. Ladle Refining Furnace.
