Study on Sintered Wall Materials Made Use of Iron Tailings and Waste Rock
Iron ore tailings and waste rock are solid waste during mining in the steel industry. This paper presents the study on sintered wall materials made use of iron tailings and waste rock. The process parameters through chemical analysis and thermal analysis to determine the feasibility of using iron ore tailings and rock on sintered wall material. Plasticity index, firing shrinkage, water absorption, apparent porosity and bulk density are tested, and the proportion of these two materials are also determined. The results show that iron tailings and waste rock can be used to sinter MU15 wall materials, with the sintering temperature ranges 850-950°C, but shrinkage of the specimen (diameter and height shrinkage) of 2.5%-5.0%, and the apparent porosity 42% or more. This technology not only use both waste as raw material, furthermore, because of the higher iron content in iron ore tailings and waste rock, the products reduce the sintering temperature, decreased energy consumption. The technology uses waste as raw material, furthermore, due to the high iron content in the ore tailings and waste rock, the sintering temperature is decreased, which saves energy.
