Iron Ore Reduction - an overview ScienceDirect

Currently the dominating process for the iron-ore reduction is the blast furnace (BF) technology. These furnaces consist of a moving bed reactor with a counter-current flow of the solid reactants against a reducing gas. Not only are the energy costs relatively high for these blast furnaces the pollution problems can also be quite severe. The iron-ore fines that enter the BF need to go through a

Direct reduced iron - Wikipedia

Direct reduction processes can be divided roughly into two categories: 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 1,200 °C (2,190 °F)). The direct reduction process is comparatively energy efficient. Steelmade using DRI requires significant

THE FUNDAMENTAL ASPECTS OF IRON ORE REDUCTION

T RON ore reduction is the conversion of iron oxide minerals to metallic iron. The chemical reactions involved take place in the blast furnace during the production of hot metal or in the several proposed solid-state processes that pro-duce sponge iron. Because there are three oxides of iron, hematite, magnetite and wustite, and be-
