Chromium was first isolated as a metal in 1798, but it was not until 1818 that it was put to regular use in pigments for the manufacturing of wallpaper. With the development of the world steel industry during the 20th century, chromium has assumed a considerable importance as an alloying element. Chromium usage may be divided into three broad, widely diverse areas of application:
.Refractory and Foundry Sand (3.5%)
The metal’s greatest benefit to the metallurgical industry lies in its ability to impart such properties as corrosion resistance, hardness, strength and bright attractive furnish. For this reason, metallurgical grade ores are used for the production of ferrochrome used by the steel making industry in the production of corrosion and heat resistant steel and stainless steel. Chromium has no substitute in stainless steel, the leading end use, or in super alloys, the major strategic end use.Chromium-bearing scrap can substitute for ferrochrome in other metallurgical applications.
The chemical application of chromium embraces all aspects that involve dissolving ore into aqueous solution by chemical means. Chromium is converted into dichromate for the manufacturing of coloring agents, timber preservatives, and for leather tanning and chromium plating.
Most important to the manufacturing of refractory bricks used in furnace lining are low silica content and the consistency of ore which is the characteristic of theMuslim Bagh chrome ore, with nice Cr:Fe up to 3.5:1Chrome foundry ore is a specialized, well graded product used extensively in the production of steels casting and other foundry practices.Chrome ore was discovered in Muslim Bagh in 1892 and mining was started in 1904 in the British Rule. 278,000 mt Chrome ore was exported during 2nd World War.
The annual production capacity of Chrome ore from Muslim Bagh is 250,000 mt. At present, we are one of fastest growing companies in Pakistan, we are mine owners and lease owner in Muslim Bagh, and we have been allotted 395 acres mines area in Muslim Bagh.
We are the leading mine owners and suppliers of chrome ore from Muslim Bagh. We can offer 3000-5000mt per month 42% base chrome ore, and 1000-2000 mt per month 52% base chrome ore.
