How to make Steel
In order to make steel, iron ore must be mined from the ground. Then it is smelted in furnaces where unwanted alien particles are removed and carbon is inserted.
The Bessemer Process
The Bessemer process was the first steel making process that allowed mass production of steel that was affordable. This process is named after Henry Bessemer (right) who invented the process in 1855. The Bessemer process was carried out in a giant steel container coated in clay. This machine was know as the Bessemer Converter (Below). It could hold from 8-30 tons of molten iron.
Today in our modern world the Bessemer Process is no longer used because cheaper and easier ways have been invented.
