English term or phrase:bloomery
Aqui lo que es, pero como se traduce?
"A bloomery is a type of furnace once widely used for smelting iron from its oxides. The bloomery was the earliest form of smelter capable of smelting iron. A bloomery's product is a porous mass of iron and slag called a bloom. This mix of slag and iron in the bloom is called sponge iron, which is usually consolidated (shingled) and further forged into wrought iron. The bloomery has now largely been superseded by the blast furnace, which produces pig iron."
Explanation: "Hasta el sigo IVX d.C. se calentaba una masa de mineral de hierro y carbón vegetal en un horno o forja de tiro forzado. Este tratamiento reducía el mineral a una masa esponjosa de hierro metálico..."
