Very good explanation of the iron/steel making processes. I have work in the mini mill process for about 25 years. Scrap steel is the life blood of these operations. Just a little info on shredders; the on I work on could shred 100 tons per hour, the motor that ran the thing was 8000 hp at 498rpm. The rotor and hammers (the thing that chews up the cars and school busses) weighed about 60,ooo lbs. that thing was an absolute beast and I’m am sooo glad I don’t have to work on it no more!!!

Fine job on this post!!!

I’m gonna us the “Amirite” in my next staff meeting!!!
