In the case of fluidized-bed reduction of iron ore, earlier works [8, 9, 10] indicated that sticking occurred mostly during metallization of ore The defluidization tended to be preferred at a high fractional reduction and metallization degree Some ore particles were precipitated by the metal iron with the fibrous shape on the particle surface
The industrial application of fluidized bed direct reduction (DR) process for fine iron ore is hampered by the sticking of direct reduction iron (DRI) particl In the present study, the carbon precipitation reaction is coupled with the reduction reaction of fine iron ore to modify the cohesive force among DRI particl
Novel process chemistry of methane in a fluidized bed was investigated to identify a more direct route to producing the reducing gas needed in the Direct Reduction of iron ore A rather surprising result, however, of the study was the discovery of an inexpensive and attrition-resistant catalytic material for methane oxidative coupling
INTRODUCTION During the past few years there has been considerable interest in developing the so-called direct reduction processes for treating iron oxid The various methods proposed were recently reviewed by Scortecci and Palazzi (1960) In particular the application of fluidized bed techniques received considerable attention and, on first examination, this seems to be the ideal.
The direct reduction process uses pelletized iron ore or natural "lump" ore One exception is the fluidized bed process which requires sized iron ore particl The direct reduction process can use natural gas contaminated with inert gases, avoiding the need to remove these gases for other use
