Flash Reduction of Iron Ore. | National Technical Reports …

A coil reduction system was investigated for flash reduction of fine iron ore. The ore and reducing gas were fed concurrently so that the velocity of the gas at the reaction temperature was sufficient to entrain and transport the solid through the coil. Reduction is very rapid, retention time varies between 4 and 15 seconds.

2020-3-23 · There have been studies about the low-temperature reduction degradation characteristics of pellets, sinter, and lump ore, [] as well as the softening, shrinking, and melting reduction behavior of all charge materials or just part of them. [3-9]Even though some research has considered all iron-bearing materials (sinter, iron ore pellets, and lump ore), the authors …

REOXIDATION KINETICS OF FLASH REDUCED IRON …

2015-5-19 · Iron product in the novel flash ironmaking process may also come into contact with air at moderate temperatures during transportation. Since direct reduced iron is usually pyrophoric and may ignite spontaneously due to the exothermic oxidation reaction,[11] reoxidation of flash reduced iron particles in O2-N2 gas mixtures is also of interest. Since
