The Extraction of Iron Chemistry LibreTexts

Extracting iron from iron ore using a Blast Furnace The common ores of iron are both iron oxides and these can be reduced to iron by heating them with carbon in the form of coke Coke is produced by heating coal in the absence of air Coke is cheap and provides both the reducing agent for the reaction and also the heat source

Extracting iron Iron and aluminium GCSE Chemistry

Iron is extracted from iron ore in a huge container called a blast furnace Iron ores such as haematite contain iron III oxide Fe2O3 The oxygen must be removed from the iron III oxide in

Extracting iron from iron ore • Ekomuseum Bergslagen

Extracting iron from iron ore In the 12th century men started to mine iron ore from rock They learnt how to recognize rock that contained iron ore and broke off pieces of rock by lighting fires against it to make it brittle The work was done from the surface down excavating the rock in opencast mines and following the veins of ore

How Iron Works

To get iron from the ore smelting has to take place and this is usually done under very high heat which transitions the ore into a spongy state In the process chemical compounds are broken down The Process Of Extracting Iron Initially iron ore was placed

Processes extraction mining smelting refining

The ore is removed from the ground in either open pit or underground mines Underground sinking a vertical shaft into the earth to reach the copper ore and driving horizontal tunnels into the ore Openpit 90 of ore is mined using the open pit method Ores near the surface can be quarried after removal of the surface layers

How Is Iron Extracted From the Earth

The use of heavy mining equipment is necessary to dig out large pits in an area with a large deposit of iron ore however because iron does not occur naturally it is necessary to use a blast furnace to separate or refine iron from the other substances in the iron ore Magnetite and hematite are iron oxides however the extraction of iron from an iron oxide involves a series of steps that begins when mined
