The Bessemer process was the first inexpensive industrial process for the mass production of steel from molten pig iron before the development of the open hearth furnace. The key principle is removal of impurities from the iron by oxidation with air being blown through the molten iron. The oxidation also raises the temperature of the iron mass and keeps it molten. Related decarburizing with air processes had been used outside Europe for hundreds of years, but not on an industrial scale. The modern process is named after its inventor, the Englishman Henry Bessemer , who took out a patent on the process in The process using a basic refractory lining is known as the "basic Bessemer process" or Gilchrist—Thomas process after the English discoverers Percy Gilchrist and Sidney Gilchrist Thomas.
