Optimized use of limestone–dolomite (1:1) improved the physical and metallurgical properties of the fluxed pellets. Abstract Owing to the depletion of high-grade iron ore quality, many steel plants over the world are now using pellets after beneficiation of low grade ores as blast furnace feed.

pellets, and the fluxed pellets are transported to iron producing centers. The trend towards the use of fluxed pellets in blast furnaces has required a change in the transportation and distribution patterns of limestone and dolomite. In the United States, fluxed pellets are not made near the steel mills, but instead are made at the mines in


Mandal and Sinha [7] concluded that (1) It has been possible to use fluxed iron ore pellets using iron ore and lime fines as a raw material to minimize flux input in Blast Furnace as a limestone ...

Abstract: Fluxed iron ore pellets, which have a fine metallurgical performance, are the high quality burden for blast furnace ironmaking. In order to investigate the effect of basicity on the properties of green pellets, the hematite concentrated combined limestone powder to adjust the basicity of pellets, then the pelletizing and the drying characteristics of …


as a limestone and avoid bentonite addition as binder in con-ventionally prepared pellets. (2) The preparation of fluxed iron ore pellets with high basicity (1.17) has been possible without sticking pellets up to 1300°C hardening temperature. (3) The use of lime contents up to 4 wt% (pellet basicity 1.17),


The acid pellets were affected to a greater extent than the fluxed pellets, relative to both physical and metallurgical properties. Improved Organic …


Panigraphy et al. found that dolomite fluxed pellets exhibited higher porosity in comparison to limestone pellets because MgO in dolomite raised the liquidus temperature of slag. Although, there was an increase in reducibility, strength of dolomite pellets was found to be lower due to the high amount of porosity.


We claim 1. An iron ore concentrate mix suitable for forming highly fluxed iron oxide pellets, said pellets being characterized by freedom from liquid slag formation upon the outer surface thereof when heated to hardening temperatures, containing about 60 percent to about 95 percent iron ore concentrate by weight, not more than 10% SiO 2 by weight, not more than 2% Al 2 O 3 by …


The acid pellets were affected to a greater extent than the fluxed pellets, relative to both physical and metallurgical properties. Improved Organic Binder Pellets Hibbing Taconite pellets were made with an organic binder plus …


Olivine, limestone, and dolomite can be added to pellet as the raw materials to obtain olivine pellets, dolomite pellets, and mixed fluxed-type pellets, improving the high-temperature metallurgical properties of pellets and meeting the composition requirements of blast furnace [7,8,9,10]. The flexibility of the blast furnace charge structure is ...


All of these pellets incorporate about 1% by weight of bentonite as a binder. In the absence of either added limestone and/ or dolomite an acid unfluxed pellet would result. In the complete absence of added fines 8.5% of limestone and 5.5% of dolomite would be required to obtain a basic fluxed pellet of the required chemistry.


The development of fluxed pellet by Gupta [12], Pal [13], and Paswan [14] is attempted to solve storage issues with DRI and lime together. Paswan [14] …


In limestone-fluxed pellets with bentonite as a binder, although formation of calcium ferrite was noted at the basicity of 0.8, its formation in appreciable quantities was delayed until the basicity of 1.6. For the pellets produced with a combination of dolomite and limestone, even at the basicity of 1.6, only minor amounts of this phase were ...


suitable for possible replacement of MPBO pellets in Nordic blast furnaces. The MPB1 fluxed pellet composition and metallurgical results are compared to MPBO in Tables 2 and 3. The chemistry of the MPB1 is suitable because it allows removal of some of the limestone charged to the furnace. This in turn decreases the required thermal energy and ...


For fluxed type pellets containing limestone flux, this limit is most certainly higher due to how the slag builds and binds in the pellets and the necessary cold strength is a function of the pelletising process not a requirement for the blast furnace. For examples, Figure 3 shows distinct differences in bonding between LKAB


benefits of limestone-dolomite fluxed pellets. To-wards the end of the decade, fluxed pellets had been firmly established as a major product, accounting for about 30 o/o of North America's pellet production. Thetransition to fluxed pellets involved manychanges in plant equipment (e.g., flux grinding mills, pre-heat burners) and practices. Each ...


In limestone-fluxed pellets with bentonite as a binder, although formation of calcium ferrite was noted at the basicity of 0.8, its formation in appreciable quantities was delayed until the ...


Limestone fluxed iron ore pellets are reduced in CO-rich atmosphere generally accompanied by swelling behavior. If the reduction swelling index (RSI) exceeds the normal range (≥20%), it will seriously hinder the stable and anterograde production of iron making.


The moisture content of Fe ore fluxed pellets was calcd. proportionally according to the amt. of water required by the ore and limestone pellets (13.5% and 16.5% resp.). The pellet growth rate decreased as the amt. of limestone was increased. The av. drop no. of fluxed pellets contg. 20% limestone was higher than that with 10%.


Limestone fluxed pellets are highly porous and therefore very reducible but physically weaker than non-fluxed ones. The CCS distribution (see Fig. 13) is broad and the standard deviation is high for both pellet grades; therefore, the average CCS value alone is not a proper indicator of the mechanical properties of the pellets.

in developing good quality iron ore pellets with combined flux. It is found that calcined lime fluxed pellet without bentonite and limestone shows very good dry compressive strength (3.5 kg/pellet) and improved green compressive strength (1.5 kg/pellet), drop numbers (12 Nos ), cold crushing strength (310 kg/pellet) and reduction properties.


Fluxed Pellets Fluxed iron ore pellets are made by adding magnesium and/or calcium in the form of limestone and dolomite to the pelletizing feed mix. The lime and/or dolomite additions are made to improve blast furnace operation, hot metal sulphur control and furnace refractory life. Pellet producers are forced to pay extra for dolomite or
