The phosphorus content in LD slag is too high to be reused in iron making and one-hundredth percent of phosphorus go to the metal phase. The major phases present in LD slag in other parts of world are also studied, that contain some reactive mineral phase such as 2CaO.SiO 2, 3CaO.SiO 2, free CaO and MgO (Goldring and Jukes, 1997).
Uranium ore is mined in several ways: by open pit, underground or by leaching uranium from low-grade ores (see uranium mining). Uranium ore typically contains 0.1 to 0.25 percent of actual uranium oxides so extensive measures must be employed to extract the metal from its ore.
This is when solid particles stick to one another, and while this is an undesirable feature in many powder and particle processing operations, it is essential for the successful sintering of iron ore fines, coke and fluxes into a suitable blast furnace feed.
The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes in the period from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, the increasing use of steam power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the factory system.
