Sponge iron with its consistency of composition, lower content of tramp elements and particularly low phosphorus and of sulphur has drawn the attention of medium/large scale foundries for producing quality steel castings. It is one of the alternative charge materials to scrap in induction furnaces. National Metallurgical Laboratory has made an attempt to melt sponge iron in induction furnaces and optimize its melting behavour. It is possible to use continuous charging arrangements for melting of 100% sponge iron in induction furnace.
