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.

Process through Multiscale Process Modeling

3. Shaft Furnace Model 3.1. Previous Works The shaft furnace (Figure2) is the core of the DR process. Iron ore pellets are charged at the top, descend due to gravity, and encounter an upward counter-flow of gas. The reducing gas (CO and H 2, plus CH4, CO , and H O, at about 950 C) is injected peripherally at mid-height and exits at the top.

A blast furnace is the dominant process for making iron in the world. Iron ore pellets are commonly used as iron burden materials in a blast furnace, in which iron oxides are reduced to metallic molten iron. While descending, the charge faces various stresses, which affect the gas flows in the shaft and the energy efficiency of the process.
