抄録

To optimize existing iron ore reduction processes or to develop new ones, it is necessary to know the reduction kinetics of the iron ore of interest under the relevant operating conditions. In this work the reduction kinetics of hematite fine iron ore was studied for industrial-scale processes using the fluidized bed technology. Especially designed batch tests were performed in a laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor fluidized with H<sub>2</sub>, H<sub>2</sub>O, CO, CO<sub>2</sub>, N<sub>2</sub> at atmospheric and elevated pressures to simulate the relevant process conditions. To obtain the reduction rates and the degree of reduction, the concentrations of H<sub>2</sub>O, CO, and CO<sub>2</sub> in the outlet gas were analyzed by FT-IR spectroscopy.<br> Preliminary reduction tests showed a strong effect of the sample weight on the reduction rates, especially in the early stages of reduction. The optimum sample weight was determined by partly replacing the hematite with silica sand. Additionally, the silica sand provided a constant and stable flow pattern throughout the reduction tests. The effects of temperature, gas composition, particle size and pressure on the rates of reduction were tested and discussed. <br>Rate analysis showed the existence of two phases with different rates during the reduction tests. Additional investigations (microscope analysis, SEM) demonstrated that in the first phase the rates were controlled by mass transport in the gas phase and in the second phase by the reduction process within the small grains of the iron ore particles.
