Iron and steel pouring at the Ford River Rouge plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
Dearborn Michigan USA Date:1928 Duration:3 min 52 sec Sound:NO SOUND
View of a hot metal (iron) mixer at the Ford River Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan. Molten iron from ladle on a crane flows into the mixer. Mixed molten iron from several heats is later poured into the ladle. Crane carries the bucket and pours iron into an open hearth furnace. Crane moves the ladle at the rear of the open hearth furnace after the iron is converted to steel. Steel is poured in and the crane moves the ladle; a slag pot can be seen to the left of the ladle to catch the lighter slag runoff (not shown). A train of ingot molds is seen moving to be filled with the molten steel.
