Influence of Flux on Sintering Property of Imported Hematite Ore
The microstructure and compressive strength were investigated by means of optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and tensile testing machine. The influence of basicity, SiO2 and Al2O3 content on sintering property of hematite ore was studied. The results show that when the silica content was either 5.3% or 5.6%, the best result of the compressive strength of samples obtained at middle basicity. While the silica content was up to 5.9%, the greatest value of the compressive strength of samples attained at lower basicity.
