Pig iron – irreplaceable raw material in the shape of ingots
A large sector of modern life could not be imagined without products made of cast iron. Since 1972 Richard Anton KG has been supplying an important raw material for just that: pig iron with specified analysis.
Our far-reaching net of supplier plants (in Brazil and Russia) as well as storage sites (in Germany and neighbouring countries in Europe) assures the supply of a great variety of pig iron grades suitable for all common types of cast iron: – nodular pig iron for SG iron – hematite pig iron for LG iron – basic pig iron for SG iron / cast steel
Our in-house commercial departments and our travelling sales staff together with a well-coordinated logistics team of forwarders and warehouses located at a number of ocean and interior ports all help assure dependable supply chains. Quality as demanded and just-in-time.
Recarburizers – additive and integral part of quality
Our recarburizers are used mainly in grey and ductile castings as well as in cast products with vermicular graphite. But our product range also includes suitable grades for the manufacture of high-carbon steel products or for slag foaming. Electrode graphite, high-quality petcokes, anthracite grades, slag foaming or injection carbon – Richard Anton KG supplies its partners with products of excellent quality in all areas. Grain sizes suited to the customers individual furnace size guarantee the best possible dissolution which, in turn, means high efficiency and time savings. Our experienced technicians gladly will advise you. Given the automated production processes in our almost emission- and waste-free plants we are in a position to produce on a continuous basis, 7 days a week.
We distribute our products under the name of “RANCO” known worldwide – it guarantees quality from the Richard Anton company. Deliveries are made according to the customers requirements in paper bags, big bags, or in bulk in tipper or silo trucks.

Milled graphites – small grain size, big impact
Graphite excels in a number of properties, such as its electrical conductivity, heat stability or use as a lubricant, and is therefore used in a variety of areas. In addition graphite is used in various chemical processes. All these application areas usually require finely-milled graphites in finenesses between 2 and 71 µm. Richard Anton KG owns state-of-the-art milling and screening equipment and is thus able to produce customized finely-milled grades. Grain-size analyses done with laser diffraction assure top quality control.
