Reduction Kinetics of Iron Ore Materials by Gases
The proposed balance logic-statistical model of the blast furnace process is based on the use of material and thermal balances along with calculations of heat- and mass exchange taking into account the non-uniformity of gas and burden distribution on the radius of the furnace and influence of the basic metallurgical characteristics of iron ore raw materials and coke on the indices of blast furnace operation. As a check of the applicability of the model, calculations on the most critical parameters of the blast furnace process – the smelting of ferromanganese and iron nickel with a graphical representation of heat- and mass exchange processes, dynamics of oxides reduction on the height and radius of the blast furnace have been carried out.
