Modeling of iron ore reactions in blast furnace

Dec 01, 2016 Iron ore (pellet, sinter and lump) is gradually reduced to iron in blast furnace. The reductions are a serial of heterogeneous gas solid reactions that take place from the top of the furnace and throughout the shaft region of the furnace. For full blast furnace numerical modeling, the accurate prediction of the reaction kinetics is essential as

Iron Ore Pellet an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Shaft furnaces use pellets (produced in the same way as pellets for the BF), or lump ore. Raw material for pellets is produced by crushing and grinding low-grade iron ores—typically of the taconite class and finer than 325 mesh (0.044 mm)—and magnetically separating the iron oxide (magnetite, Fe 3 O 4 ) from the siliceous gangue.

Direct reduced iron Wikipedia

Direct reduction processes can be divided roughly into two categories: gas-based, and coal-based. In both cases, the objective of the process is to drive off the oxygen contained in various forms of iron ore (sized ore, concentrates, pellets, mill scale, furnace dust, etc.), in order to convert the ore to metallic iron, without melting it (below 1,200 °C (2,190 °F)). The direct reduction process is comparatively energy efficient. Steelmade using DRI requires significant

MIDREX® Process Midrex Technologies, Inc.

Iron oxide, in pellet or lump form, is introduced through a proportioning hopper at the top of the shaft furnace. As the iron ore descends through the furnace by gravity flow, it is heated, and the oxygen is removed from the iron ore (reduction) by counterflowing gases that have a high H ₂ and CO content.
