Tata Ferroshots is a brand of quality granulated pig iron from the house of Tata Steel

Tata Ferroshots TM is a brand of quality Granulated Pig Iron from the house of Tata Steel. A product of breakthrough technology, Tata Ferroshots TM has set its footprint in the secondary steel market by delivering unmatched savings and unprecedented value.

The inherent properties of Tata Ferroshots TM lead to better yield, higher productivity and lower energy cost as compared to traditional Pig Iron/Scrap or DRI.

How is Tata Ferroshots made?

Tata Ferroshots TM is Granulated Pig Iron (GPI) solidified by cooling in water. State-of-the-art technology is at the heart of its production process.

The process of manufacturing is environment friendly and safe.

It can be used to replace pig iron, scrap or DRI in the induction furnace, electric arc furnace and basic oxygen furnace.

Tata Ferroshots manufacturing process


Tata Ferroshots are used by secondary steel manufacturers to produce Ingots, Billets and TMT Rebars.

Induction Furnace (IF)/ Electric Arc furnace (EAF)

  • Suitable to load in scrap bucket (high density, valuable for efficient charging)
  • Charging with the power-on lowers tap-to-tap time
  • High carbon content, promotes slag foaming and reduced power consumption
  • High metallic content and small size reduces risk for electrode breakage
  • Reduces the chance of furnace lining damage due to small and uniform size

Cupola Furnaces used in Foundries

  • Excellent cooling Scrap-neutral composition
  • Suitable to load in scrap skip (high density and efficient magnet loading)
  • Possible to feed continuously for temperature control during blowing
  • Small size ensures rapid melting and dissolution – no late carbon boils
