Abstract
A method for determining the annual potential production capacity (ppc) for captive blast furnace coke is described together with examples relating battery age to productivity, time, and worker hour distributions for coke-oven operations and production costs. Based on a practical best fit combination of known operating variables involving more than 140 captive oven batteries, the study shows that the U.S. steel industry currently has blast furnace coke ppc equivalent to about 62 to 64 million tons annually of coke-related finished steel shipments.
