Puddling Process of Wrought Iron

Wrought iron is virtually pure iron, containing a large number of minute threads of slag lying parallel to each other, thereby giving the metal a fibrous appearance when broken. It contains negligible carbon percentage and therefore, does not harden when quenched in water. Wrought iron is produced by puddling process in reverberatory furnace. Puddling Process              Wrought iron is produced in reverberatory furnace by puddling process which is similar to open hearth furnace with combustion taking place at one end only. The furnace is lined with iron oxide. (in the…
