The problems of the liquid-phase process of iron and steel production are considered. The international experience of steel production is presented. A continuous process of steel and iron ore production in smelting furnaces allowing to use 100% metallized charging feed has been developed. The process was tested in experimental - industrial ore-smelting furnace with the capacity of 1200 kVA on the pellets from Lebedinsky and Kachkanarsky deposits, which were metallized under Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant. The total amount of processed metallized pellets containing up to 15% waste material and 85-95% metallization is about 600 tons.


Metalized pellets, direct production of steel and cast iron.
