About the sample
This sample of iron is for analysis from a local steel mill. It dates from the time when the steel production was based on the ore from the iron mine Tajmište. The ore contained 32-37 % iron in a silicate form. The mine Tajmište is situated on the east side of the mountain Bistra. Today, the company Makstil is producing steel in a form of hot rolled plates. Instead of ore, they use scrap metal which is melted and refined using electrical energy in an electric arc furnace. This sample has been donated by the chief engineer of chemical laboratory for spectral analysis Stanko Ilik Popov.
