Abstract

Microwave application in the iron industry may be characterized by a high potential for an essential reduction of carbon dioxide emission. Previous experiments performed at 2.45 GHz in Nitrogen atmosphere with natural irons ores demonstrated that high purity pig iron can be produced with less than 1/10 of impurities as compared to iron that modern blast furnaces can produce. This paper describes experimental investigations on pig iron production by application of a 30 GHz microwave system. As a starting material mixed powders of magnetite and carbon with different mix ratios were used. In this paper, we will discuss the analysis of iron cores heated by the 30 GHz mm-wave system.
