Abstract
The objectives of this study were to improve blast furnace practice, expand and develop understanding of the operation and theory, quantify the effects of changes, and explore the limitations of operability. Under cooperative agreements between the Bureau of Mines and North American steel companies, seven evaluation tests with blast furnace iron-bearing burden materials were conducted in Bruceton, Pennsylvania. The effects of pellet strength, fines in the burden, decreasing slag volume, pellet size, eliminating stone with superfluxed sinter, and eliminating stone by prefluxing the pellets were determined. Fluxed pellets and fluxed sinter made with the same ore fines were compared. This report describes the results of the seven tests.
