The steelmaking industry in semi-integrated plants produces steel from ferrous scrap, using electric arc furnaces (EAF). Besides steel, this operation generates several solid wastes or by-products with low value. Among these wastes, there are some with high iron content, mainly composed of iron oxides, e.g mill scale and EAF dust, which increase the interest on recycling them in the plant ...

Scale Formation in Reheating Furnace – IspatGuru

The phenomena of scale formation (oxidation) on the steel surface during reheating of steel material in the reheating furnace are unavoidable and difficult to control. Disadvantages of scale formation include steel consumption and scale fall out in route to rolling mill, which requires clean up and usually cause environmental issues.

The mill-scale on steel and welding

 · Electrochemically, mill scale is cathodic compared to steel, so any kind of breakage in the scale could lead to accelerated corrosion in the steel at the point of breakage. Thus, the scale is considered an advantage for a short time until the coating cracks due to mechanical factors such as the handling of steel as well as other processes such as abrasive blasting, pickling and flame cleaning.

WHAT IS MILL SCALE?

Mill scale is less reactive (more “noble”) than the steel underneath, and consistent with the behaviour of two dissimilar metals when in contact, the more reactive metal (in this case steel) will oxidise (rust) at the expense of the less reactive metal (mill scale).

Mill Scale Uses and Applications

A. Mill scale is oxides of iron and alloying elements present in steel. Obviously, it is a rich source of iron. Most of the steel plants recycle mill scale through sintering or pelletization. However, a value-added utilization of mill scale is in steel making after converting
