A by-bass chute for the intensive mixer was foreseen in the layout, to avoid stopping the sintering line process in case of maintenance or troubleshooting.
Jun 11, 2019 The only source of primary iron is iron ore, but before all that iron ore can be turned into steel, it must go through the sintering process. Sinter is the primary feed material for making iron and steel in a blast furnace. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the sintering process converts fine-sized raw materials, including iron ore, coke breeze,
Jan 01, 2012 Similar to sintering, pelletizing is another widely used process to agglomerate the iron ore. Sinter plants are usually located near the blast furnace plant, but pelletizing plants are often located near the mining site. Some works have both

Mar 09, 2013 Sintering is a thermal process (carried out at 1300 deg C to 1400 deg C) by which a mixture of iron ore, return fines, recycled products of the steel plant industry (such as mill scale, blast furnace dusts, etc.), slag forming elements, fluxes and coke fines are agglomerated in a sinter plant with the purpose of manufacturing a sintered product of a suitable chemical
consists of a cellular mass of ore bonded in a slag matrix. The sinter mix, besides the ore fines, usually contains other materials like flue dust, return fines, limestone and/or dolomite etc., in order to control the properties of the product as well as to utilize industrial waste. Return sinter fines having lower fusion temperature than the raw mix serve as seeds for initiation of the sintering
Jun 18, 2019 But before all that iron ore can be turned into steel, it must go through the sintering process. Sinter is the primary feed material for making iron and steel in a blast furnace. We recently wrote about sintering in our sister blog, Advancing Mining. Read the article to learn more about how sinter quality begins with the mined iron ore and the ...
First, moistened concentrates are fed to a rotating drum or an inclined disc, the tumbling action of which produces soft, spherical agglomerates. These green balls are then dried and hardened by firing in air to a temperature in the range of 1,250 to 1,340 C (2,300 to 2,440 F). Finally, they are slowly cooled.
May 20, 2019 Iron ore sintering is an important stage in the production of steel from iron ore. Sinter can constitute more than 60% of ferrous burden in modern blast furnaces in Japan and most blast furnaces in Europe. Iron ore sintering is a high temperature process which converts iron ore fines (68 mm in size, too small for direct feed into the blast ...
