Abstract

Multi-dimensional blast furnace operation simulator based on multi-fluid theory and reaction kinetics is applied to the novel operations of blast furnace. The effective use of carbon composite agglomerates (CCB) in blast furnace is expected to have several advantages to improve furnace efficiency. In this study, mathematical expression of reduction behavior of CCB was introduced into the blast furnace simulator and the effect of charging CCB to blast furnace and accompanying temperature lowering were numerically examined. The calculation results showed the increase in productivity and decrease in reducing agent rate with CCB charging while reduction of iron-bearing materials was retarded due to temperature decrease in stack region. Thermal analysis revealed that this improvement of heat efficiency is caused by the decrease in heat requirements for solution loss, sinter reduction and silicon transfer reactions, heat outflow by top gas and wall heat transfer.
