The process of reducing gas to convert iron ore into metallic iron is known as direct reduction. Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) is a manufactured metallic material produced by the reduction (removal of oxygen) of iron oxide at temperatures below the melting point of iron (1536° C or 2797° F).
At Edgen Murray, we source and supply the necessary materials required for the wide range of DRI technologies, including austenitic stainless steel and multiple chrome moly grades. These materials are able to withstand the extreme temperatures and corrosive environments of DRI heaters. Our QA department uses their sound knowledge of industry codes and standards to identify non-conforming quality and manufacturing issues before they have a chance to impact the project.
