How is Iron Extracted from Iron Ore Actforlibraries.org

The most common of the modern methods used to extract iron from its ores is coke smelting in a blast furnace. The development of this technique is largely credited to Abraham Darby, who set up his Brass and Iron Works in Shopshire in 1709, which was important in the creation of the industrial era that followed.

2020-5-29  Iron making evolved over a few thousand years. Using the ancient "bloomery" method, iron ore was converted directly into wrought iron by heating the ore while at the same time melting the ore's impurities and squeezing them out with hand hammers. This is also called the "direct process."

How is Iron Refined from Ore? (with pictures)

Iron ore consists of oxygen and iron atoms bonded together into molecules. To create pure iron, one must deoxygenate the ore, leaving only iron atoms behind, which is the essence of the refining process. To purify and strengthen iron, materials like coke are mixed in with it to remove oxygen. To coax the oxygen atoms away from the ore requires ...

C + O2 → CO2. The heat produced by this reaction is the main source of heat in the blast furnace that is used for iron production. At the bottom of the furnace, the temperature is very high, which causes more of the coke to react with carbon dioxide, producing carbon monoxide. C + CO2 → 2CO. The carbon monoxide then becomes the “reducing ...

2020-5-29  Bog ore is an iron-rich sedimentary rock that was harvested locally from bogs and similar bodies of water. It was also found in fields and meadows that used to be bogs. Bog ore is often considerably less than 50% iron. The rest of the rock was made up of impurities that the workers had to remove. Gabbro was used as a flux;a way to purify the ore.
