A Technical and Economic Analysis of Pig Iron Production
Blast furnace work involves the flow of enormous volumes of raw materials. Modifications of the blast furmace operation parameters can bring about savings connected with materials consumption and also a reduction of production costs. The continuous technical-economic analysis of this process enables changes in the process to be observed by means of simple indexes. In this article, a technical-economic analysis of the blast furnace process is presented. It is based on the results of a Polish blast furnace with an overall capacity of 3200m3.
