Gas-Solid Reaction Model for Non-spherical lron Oxide
Iron oxide pellets of various shapes are reduced from hematite to magnetite with CO–CO<sub>2</sub> gas mixture to investigate the shape effect on the gaseous reduction rate of an iron oxide pellet. Based on the observation result of the section of partly converted pellets, a model of the mixed-control kinetics for a non-spherical iron oxide is proposed. A determination method of the rate parameters included in this model is presented. Applicability of this model is reviewed comparing to one of existing models for non-spherical particle. For derivation of the mixed-control rate equation for a non-spherical iron oxide, the concept of non-spherical radius is introduced.
