    Abstract

    The simultaneous effects of three major processing variables upon the extent of reduction of iron ore pellets and the physical properties of the reduced product have been investigated under closely controlled conditions in a small rotary kiln. The three variables studied were time, temperature, and the ratio of fixed carbon in the reductant to iron in the pellets. The results indicate how optimum combinations of extent of reduction and product properties may be achieved, and should be useful in the design and operation of large-scale continuous kilns.
