In view of decreasing availability of high-quality raw materials, the agglomeration of fine and ultra-fine iron ores becomes increasingly important to meet requirements of BF and DR plants. Primetals Technologies’ comprehensive technological expertise on the entire metallurgical process chain is the basis for tailor-made sinter and pellet quality. This know-how also includes an in-depth understanding of the mineralogical properties of the ores which is essential for a wide range of applications – from laboratory testing to large-scale plants. The focus on chemical and metallurgical properties as well as physical product requirements is just as important as the ecological footprint. Energy efficiency, state-of-the-art off-gas cleaning and advanced process control are integrated components of Primetals Technologies technical solutions.
