Fines Generation in Kiln Process of Direct Reduction

Venkatesan, S and Sahoo, K C and Barpanda, S (1985) Fines Generation in Kiln Process of Direct Reduction. In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



The growth of iron and steel making through conven-tional BF-BOF route is restricted due to depleting reserves of coking coal. Direct reduction(DR) processes, which eliminate the use of coke, have become technolo-gically and economically viable alternative for ore reduction. Direct reduction is a solid state process of reducing iron ore lumps, fines or pellets using a solid reductant such as non-coking coal or a gaseous reductant such as reformed natural gas.
