production. In this paper the direct reduction of iron ore to sponge iron is used as an example. The model incorporates a large number of variables, covering, among others feed properties and rates, combustion options, kiln operating information (speed and fill level), blower
In a direct reduction process, lump iron oxide pellets and/or lump iron ore, are reduced (oxygen removed) by a reducing gas, producing direct reduced iron (DRI). If the cooling stage is omitted, the DRI can be immediately briquetted into hot briquetted iron (HBI). The reducing gas can be
A green process for the preparation of direct reduced iron (DRI) from iron ore by reduction using microwave assisted low temperature hydrogen plasma, wherein the said process includes the steps of loading of iron ore onto the sample holder followed by evacuating of the chamber introducing the hydrogen gas in the chamber at flow rate ranging between 100-500 sccm followed by heating the holder ...
Abstract Iron ore direct reduction is an attractive alternative steelmaking process in the context of greenhouse gas mitigation. To simulate the process and explore possible optimization, we developed a systemic, multiscale process model. The reduction of the iron ore pellets is described using
Jun 21, 2018 In the direct-reduced iron (DRI) process, the iron ores are reduced directly to sponge iron by gaseous reducing agents Electro-steel process. In the electric steel process, the sponge iron obtained from the direct reduced iron process is used for crude steel making. In general, scrap is also added to this process as well as pig iron from the blast furnace process.
Direct reduction (DR) Direct reduction involves the production of solid iron from iron ores and a reducing agent (e.g., natural gas). The solid product is called DRI and is mainly applied as feedstock in EAF. The direct reduction process has been commercialized since the 1970s and
Fe2O3 3H2 2Fe 3H2O (2) In contrast to the blast furnace process, the direct-reduced iron process operates at temperatures of up to 1000 C. The iron ores are therefore not melted This also applies to the gangue contained in the ore, which is why the iron ores used must be relatively low in gangue from the outset.
Direct reduction of iron is the removal of oxygen from iron ore or other iron bearing materials in the solid state, i.e. without melting, as in the blast furnace. The reducing agents are carbon monoxide and hydrogen, coming from reformed natural gas, syngas or coal. Iron ore is used mostly in pellet and/or lumpy form.
Mar 16, 2013 Direct reduction can be defined as reduction in the solid state at O2 potentials which allow reduction of iron oxides, but not of other oxides (MnO, and SiO2 etc.), to the corresponding elements. Since reduction is in the solid state, there is very little chance of these elements dissolving (at low thermodynamic activity) in the reduced iron, so the oxides which are more stable than iron remain essentially unreduced.
The reduction reaction of the iron oxide occurring inside the shaft furnace is expressed by (1) and (2) Fe 2 O 3 3H 2 2Fe 3H 2 O H0 72.82kJ (1) Fe 2 O 3 3CO 2Fe 3CO 2 H0 42.98kJ (2) Equation (1) represents the reduction reaction by hydrogen and is highly endothermic, while Equation
Mar 30, 2016 Processes that produce iron by reduction of iron ore (in solid state) below the melting point are generally classified as DR processes.
Jul 28, 2021 Iron oxide, in pellet or lump form, is introduced through a proportioning hopper at the top of the shaft furnace. As the iron ore descends through the furnace by gravity flow, it is heated, and the oxygen is removed from the iron ore (reduction) by counterflowing gases that have a high H and CO content. These gases react with the iron oxide in the iron ore and convert it to metallic iron, leaving H O and CO .
Dec 01, 2018 In the latter, the basic concept is to use a hydrogen direct reduction (H-DR) process to produce direct reduced iron (DRI) which is then converted to steel in an electric arc furnace (EAF). There is so far very little information on the hydrogen direct reduction (H-DR) process in the scientific literature.
3. Direct Reduction Processes Direct reduction is defined as a process of producing solid iron product out of small-grain ore, lump ore or pallets, applying natural gas or coal-based reducing agents at relatively low temperatures i.e. at around 1000OC. There are two different types of direct reduction processes
Mar 08, 2021 Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) This iron production process directly reduces iron ore in solid-state with the reaction temperature below the melting point of iron. Reducing gases are produced from natural gas (gas-based DRI) or coal (coal-based DRI) called syngas, a mixture of H2 and CO.

Apr 27, 2016 through gravity flow, the gas rises through the material column and removes oxygen from the iron carriers. This forms the direct reduced iron (DRI) which is typically composed of 90 to 94% iron. After the DRI exits the shaft furnace, it can be cooled and compressed to briquetted iron
May 13, 2020 The main output streams comprise hot direct reduced iron at a temperature level of approximately 700 C as well as off gas of the reformer. The shaft reactor itself, which is the main component for the reduction process, is simulated as a two-zone model.
MIDREX direct reduction process. He proposed the concept of combining stoichiometric natural gas reforming with shaft furnace direct reduction of iron ore. This process came in use for the first time by the Midland-Ross Co., which later became MIDREX Technologies, Inc. The plants were built in Toledo, Ohio in 1967 and in Portland, Oregon, in 1969.

Steelmaking based on direct reduced iron (DRI, and its compacted derivative hot briquetted iron, HBI) is an anticipated important global alternative to current steel production based on FeOx reduction in blast furnaces due to its lower specific CO2 emission.
