Abstract

The fluidity and amount of formed melt are important factors for coalescing of granules in sintering since the phenomenon is based on bonding among unfused particles with the melt formed by the partial fusion of the granules. This study, found how the sintering temperature, mixing ratio of limestone, and particle size of iron ores used influence the fluidity. The results also suggested that segregation of materials affects fluidity. A fair linear relation was found between the fluidity obtained for adhering mixtures of granules and strength of the sintered granules. The effect of pre-calcination of limonitic ore on strength after sintering was examined.
