Industrial Slag is a by-product of the copper smelting process. When in a molten state, the slag is quenched rapidly and washed by highly pressurized water. It is then granulated to create a black irregular shaped material that has a glossy appearance. Applications: Industrial Slag can be used as an iron source in the manufacturing of Portland Cement. Its benefits include an oil free source of iron oxide as well as a low Chrome content. Industrial Slag is also recognized as a premier blasting abrassive. Industrial Slag has a very consistent chemistry and sizing. It handles very well event when wet.
Iron Rich Material (IRM) is a by-product of a zinc recovery operation from the Waelz kiln process, which produces crude zinc-oxide, a raw material used in the production of zinc metal. The resulting IRM by-product is cooled and discharged into stockpile for shipment to the end user. Applications: Iron source for cement manufacturing Iron source for steel manufacturing Asphalt/Aggregate
Mill Scale is a byproduct of the steel manufacturing industry. It consists of oxides of iron that form on the surface of hot metal during processing. While the steel is very hot, it picks up oxygen from the air and forms a thin crust. As the steel is stretched and shaped, the thin crust falls to the ground.
Steel Slag is a non-metallic byproduct of the steel making industry and consists of calcium, magnesium, aluminum and iron silicates. This slag Is formed when molten Iron, scrap metals and various fluxes, are oxidized by injecting large amounts of pure oxygen into the molten iron mix to create molten steel and molten slag. Slow cooling of the molten slag produces a dense rock material.
