Sponge iron is a metallic product produced through direct reduction of iron ore in the solid state. It is a substitute for scrap and is mainly used in making steel through the secondary route. The process of sponge iron making aims to remove the oxygen from iron ore.
The chemistry of steelmaking. The big picture.
Most workable iron ores are rich in iron (III) oxide, Fe 2 O 3. Making iron by removing oxygen from the ore is the first step in the manufacture of steel. Reduction and oxidation Removing oxygen chemically from a substance is called reduction. The industrial
Shaft Furnace Direct Reduction Technology - Midrex and …
So lower energy consumption, lower CO2 emission and waste recycling are driving the iron and steel industry to develop alternative, or coke-free, ironmaking process. Midrex and HYL Energiron are the leading technologies in shaft furnace direct reduction, and they account for …
PROPERTIES AND FEATURES OF DIRECT REDUCED IRON: …
31/1/2007· The blast furnace process is still the predominant method for primary iron production. However, the disadvantages inherent to the process led to the development of alternative processes such as the mini blast furnace process, smelting reduction process, and direct

26/6/2019· The hot direct reduced iron (HDRI) leaves the reduction unit at a temperature of approx. 600 C, which can be subsequently used in an electric arc furnace or to produce Hot Briquetted Iron. The aim of the pilot plant is to verify the break-through process and to serve as a testing facility to provide the data basis for setting up an industrial scale size plant at a later date.
Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) - UK P&I
85 Chapter 11 Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) The world market for steel is expected to continue to increase. The volume of steel produced by the, now old-fashioned, blast furnace process is already very low and will continue to decline relative to the volume of steel
Blast furnace process - tec-science
In the indirect reduction zone, the iron oxide contained in the iron ores is reduced by carbon monoxide gas, whereby the iron ores are not melted! Direct reduction zone If the iron ores, which have not yet been reduced, move further down in the blast furnace, then the carbon can also directly reduce the iron oxides contained in the ore due to the high temperatures.
Sponge Iron Manufacturer India
Direct reduction processes can be divided roughly into two egories: gas-based, and coal-based. In both cases, the objective of the process is to drive off the oxygen contained in various forms of iron ore (sized ore, concentrates, pellets, mill scale, furnace dust, etc.), in order to convert the ore to metallic iron, without melting it (below 1200 °C).
Iron Ore Pelletizing Process: An Overview | IntechOpen
10/7/2017· The iron ore production has significantly expanded in recent years, owing to increasing steel demands in developing countries. However, the content of iron in ore deposits has deteriorated and low-grade iron ore has been processed. The fines resulting from the concentration process must be agglomerated for use in iron and steelmaking. This chapter shows the status of the pelletizing process
