Key Considerations

Several needs should be taken into consideration when selecting the right product for your ironmaking process:

  • Chemistry of the iron ore 
  • Limestone sizing
Critical parameters
Typical consumption (Kg/ton)

1. Grain size
2. MgO content
3. Lower content of SiO2, MgO, Al2O3, and Sulphur

Limestone: 100 – 150 
Lime: 0 – 25


Your Benefits

  • Optimum chemistry and purity 
  • Proper sizing 
  • High, specific levels of calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, or both
  • Low levels of residuals including silica, clay and organic matter

Agglomeration and Sintering 
1. Granulometry control helps uniform blending impacting permeability of the charge mix
2. Burnt lime improves heat transfer in sintered layer, thanks to calcination
3. Burnt lime improves productivity by about 20% and production cost
