Secondary Pig Iron (also known as Beach Iron, Bed Iron or Flat Iron) is produced when high purity pig iron slabs are crushed into manageable shaped blocks. Due to its high carbon, low residuals and minimal slag content beach iron provides significant value to steelworks and grey iron foundries. Beach iron pieces vary in size but generally have a maximum thickness of 400 mm, a maximum width of 750 mm and a maximum length of 1200 mm or 750 mm (depending on the amount of processing requested).
