Our high quality clean steel ingots are sourced from Ellwood’s steelmaking divisions Ellwood Quality Steels and Ellwood National Steel. We offer a variety of materials including carbon, alloy, stainless, tool steel and nickel alloys. Our material is produced with tight chemistry control to provide heat-to-heat consistency and unparalleled cleanliness. Materials are electric arc furnace melted, ladle refined and vacuum degassed. Our steel is then bottom poured into a wide range of either cylindrical or tapered big-end-up ingots based on our customers’ needs. Low carbon stainless steel grades are produced using state-of- the-art Vacuum Oxygen Decarburization (VOD) processing.
Additional refining through vacuum arc remelting (VAR) and electro-slag remelting (ESR) are available when even more stringent cleanliness specifications are required.
