Abstract

A description is given of a laboratory reduction apparatus which uses microcomputer control to achieve simulation of the gas and temperature profiles which occur in direct reduction shaft furnaces. The course of reduction is different to that observed in fixed gas composition reduction experiments. The quality of reduced materials is dependent on both the original oxide and the initial reduction temperature. There may be scope for adjusting the operational parameters of direct reduction furnaces to maximize the quality of directly reduced iron being produced from particular burdens.
