THE greatest single advance in blast-furnace technology in recent years has been the recognition that blast-furnace operations can be improved upon by proper process-engineering analysis.The blast-furnace is a moving packed-bed reactor in which the iron-bearing material is dried, heated, reduced, melted, and partly refined. Simultane-ously, heat and reducing gases are produced in the tuyere zone by burning coke with preheated blast air.
