Blast furnace slag is a nonmetallic coproduct produced in the process in the production of iron from iron ore or iron scrap. It consists primarily of silies, aluminosilies, and calciumaluminasilies. The molten slag, which absorbs much of the sulfur from the charge, comprises about 20 percent by mass of iron
blast furnace as a result of prior calcinations outside the furnace and thus reduces the coke rate (Singh and Deo, 1995). Incorporation of flux in the burden through sinter, therefore, greatly improves the blast furnace performance, since the formation of slag then becomes relatively easy and it forms at the correct level in the blast furnace.
The blast furnace is still the dominant form of iron production, but over the years, direct reduction methods have increased due to a number of reasons. Overall, iron production methods have optimal requirements with respect to the feed materials especially iron ore. In this study, tests were carried out on Muko iron ore from Uganda to analyse its suitability to meet the feed requirements of
In this paper, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model is employed to investigate changes in ore and coke reaction rates in the shaft region of a blast furnace. The effects of iron ore
Sinter is the predominant blast furnace feed material in Asia, due to the availability of sinter fines and the ability to control the sinter chemical, physical and metallurgical properties. The main iron ore impacts on the sintering process are: Chemistry: A range of iron ore fines from different
AbstractOne of the most important factors to increase the economic efficiency of the blast furnace process is to reduced coke losses (undersieve product known as nut coke). In recent years there has been increased interest in mixing nut coke in the sinter layers. In order to clarify the influence of nut coke on sinter reducibility, sinter and sinter–nut coke mixtures were isothermally
Aug 04, 2011 · The purpose of a blast furnace is to chemically reduce and physically convert iron oxides into liquid iron called "hot metal". The blast furnace is a huge, steel stack lined with refractory brick, where iron ore, coke and limestone are dumped into the top, and preheated air
The most important problem at the blast furnace process developing is the great coke consumption decreasing at the minimization of the general energy costs. One of the most effective ways of ironmaking technical progress is the iron ore materials and coke physicochemical properties improvement which allows to increase the iron productivity and decrease the specific coke rate without
grade iron ore availability. To meet ever increasing demand for iron ore with growth in Steel i.e. 110 million tones by 2020 Improved productivity and efficiency of the rotary kiln & Blast Furnace with superior reducibility behaviour of pellets compared to lump ore. 7
Apr 28, 2014 · How A Blast Furnace Works The purpose of a blast furnace is to chemically reduce and physically convert iron oxides into liquid iron called "hot metal". The blast furnace is a huge, steel stack lined with refractory brick, where iron ore, coke and limestone are
various factors which affect the reducibility of th e iron ore pellet. In our project we aim at studying the effect of size of iron ore pellet on i ts reduction kinetics and in the course of our experimentation we aim at arriving at particula r pellet size that gives both increases in productivity and decrease coke rate.
Iron ore pellets are used for the production of hot metal in blast furnaces and DRI/HBI in direct reduction processes. A blast furnace is a shaft furnace, which is charged with iron bearing materials (pellets, sinters and/or lump ore), reducing agents (metallurgical coke
Blast furnace gas is produced during the iron oxide reduction in blast furnace iron making in which iron ore, coke and limestone are heated and melted in a blast furnace and is an indigenous process gas of the steelworks industry (Pugh et al., 2013).

In a blast furnace (BF) the iron oxides are reduced and the resulting iron is melted. Approximately 70% of the global steel production involves the use of BFs. Sizes of BFs installed cover a very wide spectrum, ranging from less than 100 m3 to more than 5000 m3. Larger BFs have less heat losses and enable installation of heat recovery equipment more cost effectively (IEA, 2007.p. 116).

High competitiveness amongst the iron and steel industries has forced the operators to radically modify their operation in several fronts including the raw material preparation

The Blast Furnace was the sole producer of iron in Australia for the first seven years of its life. The remains are in themselves a resource for studying technical changes in ironmaking. Lithgow Blast Furnace was listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999 having satisfied the following criteria.
