Paper Title:
An Investigation on the Solid State Reduction of Chromite Concentrate
  Abstract

In this article, Turkish chromite concentrate was reduced with metallurgical coke at temperature between 1000-1500 °C with variables reducing times. The reduction mechanism and the microstructure of the reduced chromite were investigated. There were closer relationships between the reduction of chromite and the sample morphology, such as, the surface area and the porosities and cracks of the particle have positive effect on the metallization of iron and chromium oxides. The reduction of the iron chromite spinel started at 1000 °C, but picrochromite started to reduce at temperature around 1300 °C. At lower temperature, the formation of iron carbide phases was affected on the formation of ferro alloy and accelerates the reduction of chromium. The formation of carbon monoxide was also affected on the reduction of chromite spinel, especially around imperfections of grain where porosity, cracks and fractures act as diffusion channel for the reducing gas. For the charecterisation of the reaction products, X-ray diffraction techniques, SEM and EDAX were used.
