This RFCS project aimed to deliver solutions in order to conserve consistent blast furnace operation also in situations, when low cost materials, usually of lower quality, shall be used. Operational trials have explored ferrous fines and nut coke charging, correlated with coal injection rates. New online inspection methods have demonstrated changes of material properties between charging and raceway. Scientific knowledge have proceed and competitiveness for iron making have been increased.
Consistent Blast Furnace Operation whilst using low cost raw materials
