Sintering of Iron Ore Fines, and Raw Materials for Bhilai Steel Plant

Mathur, G P and Subramanya, G V and Narayanan, P I A (1957) Sintering of Iron Ore Fines, and Raw Materials for Bhilai Steel Plant. In: Symposium on Mineral Beneficiation and Extractive Metallurgical Techniques, Feb. 1957, NML, Jamshedpur.



A detailed study has been made at the National Metall-urgical Laboratory on the sintering charactersitics of the iron-ores of Rajharapahar. Madhya Pradesh, and other raw materials likely to be used in the Bhilai steel plant. The effects of variables such as coke and moisture contents in sinter mix, basicity and raw material proportions, on the sintering time and their effects on the quality of sinter produced, have been studied with a sintering plant desig-ned and fabricated at the Laboratory. Optimum conditions for producing the best sinter have been determined. Results of the tests on the Bhilai sample show that coke has a pronounced effect on sinter properties whereas moisture content directly affects permeability and sint-ering rate. 6.1% by weight of coke was found to be the optimum quantity for producing a good sinter. The optimum water content in the charge for producing the most per-meable bed was 7%. The basicity for producing a good self-fluxing sinter in the shortest time was 0.8
