Understanding Your Market Needs

The quality, granulometry, quantity, and method of lime addition to the agglomeration process are critical to four aspects of this plant: sinter performance, productivity, fuel rate, and environmental footprint.

What are the best ways to achieve a lower environmental footprint, improve sinter productivity and reduce energy consumption?

What is the impact of sinter quality on overall cost and downstream operations?
 

Solutions to Meet Your Needs

  • Burnt lime, as compared to limestone, improves the heat transfer in the sintered layer.
  • The amount, type and quality of fluxes have a significant role in deciding sinter quality, potentially resulting in improved energy usage and lower emissions from the sinter plant.
  • Using sinter in place of lump ore and pellets helps to reduce the blast furnace fuel rate and CO2 emissions.
  • Adding fluxed sinter feed to the blast furnace increases softening and melting temperature and it improves reduction.
  • Sinter strength plays an important role in deciding the PCI rate in blast furnaces.
