Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF)

The BOF converts the raw, molten pig-iron produced by the blast furnace to steel by using a lance to inject high pressure oxygen into the molten metal. The oxygen removes the carbon as well as other impurities from the pig-iron, in a process that is much faster and much better than historical processes.
