Steel is a versatile commodity that plays a major part in everyday life—from food cans, household containers, automobiles, and office buildings. Steel makes up the largest category of metals in the municipal solid waste (MSW) and industrial waste streams. Steel since ages has been a recycled material throughout the world
Rare earth metals are part of KREEP, along with K - the atomic symbol for potassium, and P - for phosphorus, and which is a geochemical component of some lunar impact breccia and basaltic rocks.
Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) steel making or Basic Oxygen Furnace Steelmaking (BOS) or Linz-Donawitz-Verfahren steelmaking or the oxygen converter process is a method in which both molten pig iron and steel scrap are converted into steel with the oxidizing action of oxygen blown into the melt under a basic slag.
The demands on the foundry industry become more exacting every day. Globalization not only opens up new markets and opportunities, but it also creates an enormous squeeze on costs. Only those who succeed in enhancing productivity can withstand this growing cost pressure, however, only if they do not neglect aspects such as emission control and responsible care. Foundries have increasingly become the focus of public attention as a result of growing environmental awareness and the more stringent interpretation of environmental regulations.
Metallurgy is a domain of metallic elements physical and chemical behavior and a whole, it is technology of metals that is applied to practical use. There are various types in this metallurgy process that are applied at various stages or purposes.
The methods, strategies, and practices followed to keep an industrial plant or factory running efficiently is called Plant maintenance. This includes regular checks of equipment to ensure proper functioning, to cleaning garbage bins and toilets...
Electric steel is one of the most important magnetic materials produced today and the three principal types of electrical steel are Grain Oriented (GO) steels ..
A new damage-tolerant metallic glass, demonstrating a strength and toughness beyond that of any known material developed and tested by a collaboration of researchers with the U.S.
Heat treatment and casting are the salient processes in Steel making. Heat is a part of the process from the point when raw material is washed till the final outcome is moulded to a desired shape.
Steel as a sword cuts 'many', if not 'any' thing. So it means that, Steel is a hardest and toughest material, and only then it can cut anything else. Hence, the device or procedure to cut a hard material should 'cut the mustard'.
