Use of DRI in EAF’s Gregory L. Dressel Dressel Technologies Pawleys Island, SC, USA Part I: Qualities and Storage of Direct Reduced Iron Introduction Most EAF based melt shops have been designed for 100 % scrap based melting. In the near future, the use of Direct ... than the slag density, it will float on top of the slag. ...
A direct reduced iron (DRI) production plant is a shaft reduction furnace to produce DRI with large metal iron content by directly reducing iron ore (or iron ore pellets) with reducing gases. While the produced DRI is mainly used as the raw material of electric steelmaking, it is also used as
Basicity of lag ha direct effect on many parameters such as energy and refractory conumption, slag foaming,slag viscosity and slag weight etc. A highly viscous slag contains solid lumps of lime and does not react with the steel melt nor does it foam.
Induction Furnace and Important Operational Aspects ... i.e. free from slag lumps, oxides etc., particularly for direct reduced iron, skull and ferro alloys. ... Because of use of direct reduced iron the trace elements in the steel made in the induction furnace remains under control.
Direct-reduced iron (DRI), also called sponge iron, is produced from direct reduction of iron ore (in the form of lumps, pellets or fines) by a reducing gas produced from natural gas or coal. The reducing gas is a mixture, the majority of which is hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO) which act as reducing agents.
Direct reduced iron (DRI), also called sponge iron, is produced from the direct reduction of iron ore (in the form of lumps, pellets, or fines) to iron by a reducing gas or elemental carbon produced from natural gas or coal. Many ores are suitable for direct reduction.
The generated slag is rich in CaO or MgO with specific contents of sulphur and is cooled with water in special pits. In the direct reduction process, DRI/HBI (direct reduced iron/ hot briquetted iron) is produced by reducing iron ore in solid state by gas or coal in a shaft oven (e.g. Midrex).
Ore Based Metallics (OBMs) are produced mainly by reduction of iron ore in blast furnaces (various forms of pig iron) and direct reduction plants (direct reduced iron and hot briquetted iron). Pig iron is also a by- or co-product from smelting of the titanium-bearing mineral ilmenite , the primary product being titanium dioxide slag (a ...
DUTTA, et.al. : STUDIES ON DIRECT REDUCED IRON MELTING metal interface results in foaming of slag and thus increase in the slag depth, while decreasing the slag density significantly. The combinations of a vigorous carbon boil and a deep foaming slag have different benefits.10

Use of DRI in EAF’s Gregory L. Dressel Pawleys Island, SC, USA Part IV: Direct Reduced Iron Process Effects and Applications Introduction DRI or HBI usage can have distinct effects on the melting process. Energy consumption, productivity and yield ... Slag chemistry and weight affect yield in any EAF.
Sponge iron (direct reduced iron, DRI; hot briquetted iron, HBI) produced from iron ore in direct reduction plants is converted to crude steel in electric arc furnaces. With the scrap-based route, crude steel is produced by recycling steel scrap in electric arc furnaces.
Direct reduced iron (DRI), produced by the reaction between iron ore and reducing gasses, is used as a source of low-residual iron, in addition to ferrous scrap and pig iron, in the production of steel ... absorbed in the blast furnace slag, is then removed. In the
sibility of stable operation for the direct use of molten slag, test operations in three types of arc furnaces were conducted and the results were compared. In Test 1 cold slag and car- ... reduced slag was always present in the metal bath. A part of the molten slag tapped from commercial scale
A lot of iron-bearing slags were produced, and whose grade is much more than that of industrial iron ore grade. Chemical analysis and phase identification shows that the iron-bearing slag is amorphous, has fayalite main phase, iron grade is 36. 10%, and is difficult to recover iron from the slag.
An experimental study was conducted to quantify the rate of direct reduced iron (DRI) decarburization in a steelmaking slag using the constant volume pressure increase technique. Experiments were conducted by dropping DRI pellets into molten slag at temperatures from 1773 K to 1873 K (1500 °C to ...
