direct reduction iron process

Direct reduced iron - Wikipedia

Direct reduction processes can be divided roughly into two categories: gas-based, and coal-based. In both cases, the objective of the process is to drive off the oxygen contained in various forms of iron ore (sized ore, concentrates, pellets, mill scale, furnace dust, etc.), in order to convert the ore to metallic iron, without melting it (below 1,200 °C (2,190 °F)). The direct reduction process is comparatively energy efficient. Steelmade using DRI requires significant

21/06/2018  Direct reduced iron (DRI) process. In addition to the process route via the blast furnace process, there is another option for extracting crude steel from iron ores using the so-called direct reduced iron (DRI) process (secondary route).The starting point for the efforts to find an alternative to the blast furnace process was the relatively high process expenditure.

Direct Reduction Process - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The sponge iron formed in the direct reduction process is then melted in an electric arc furnace. In these processes, the iron oxides in the ore are reduced to metallic iron. In the next step, the raw iron is usually dropped into a torpedo ladle car where reagent is added to purify the iron from sulfur. Then the steel production begins, which in principle is a matter of lowering the carbon ...

Direct-Reduced Iron - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

05/01/2012  Direct reduced iron is iron ore in the form of lumps, fines or pellets that have had the oxygen removed by using hydrogen and carbon monoxide. Typical sources of carbon monoxide are natural gas, coal gas, and coal. Other energy inputs into the production process often include oil and electricity. Since much of the energy used is in the form of natural gas (e.g., Mexico produces virtually

DRI production International Iron Metallics Association

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. The chemical reactions involved in the direct reduction of iron are the ...

Direct Reduced Iron and its Production Processes – IspatGuru

16/03/2013  In the direct reduction process, the solid metallic iron (Fe) is obtained directly from solid iron ore without subjecting the ore or the metal to fusion. 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 ...

Direct Reduction Process Description

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 generated externally to the reduction furnace, or can be generated from hydrocarbons introduced into the ...

What is Direct Reduced Iron? (with picture)

During the reduction process in the production of direct reduced iron, either coal or a special gas — commonly containing a combination of carbon monoxide and hydrogen — is used. This mixture functions as a reducing agent and facilitates the decrease in the iron's oxygen and carbon content. The result is a type of iron that is 90-97% pure, containing only minuscule amounts of carbon and ...
