DETAILS OF EXTRACTION The process of the extraction of iron is carried out by the following steps: Concentration of ore Calcination or Roasting of ore Reduction of ore Concentration of ore: In this metallurgical operation, the ore is concentrated by removing impurities like soil etc. The process involves the crushing and washing of ore.
The extraction of iron from its ore is a long and subdued process, that helps in separating the useful components from the waste materials such as slag. What happens in the Blast Furnace? The purpose of a Blast Furnace is to reduce the concentrated ore chemically to its liquid metal state.
The extraction of iron from its ore is the third and the penultimate process in metallurgy, which is the process of separating metals from their ores. The common ores of iron are iron oxides. These oxides can be reduced to iron by heating them with carbon in the form of coke. Heating coal in the absence of air produces coke.
MICROCHEMICAL JOURNAL 17, 431 435 Extraction of Iron, Cobalt, and Manganese from Hydrochloric Acid with Quaternary Amine, Aliquat 336 H. F. ALY, M. EL GARHY, AND S. EL REEFY Egypt, U.A.R. Received January 15, 1970 Separation of iron from cobalt and mangenese is of main importance m the production of carrier free iron and manganese from neutron irradiated cobalt and iron.
In this experiment, students reduce iron oxide with carbon on a match head to produce iron. The experiment provides a quick example of metal extraction, and can be used to highlight aspects of the reactivity series. This practical can easily be carried out on an individual basis by students.

This page looks at the use of the Blast Furnace in the extraction of iron from iron ore, and the conversion of the raw iron from the furnace into various kinds of steel.
