Analysis of iron sinter by X-ray diffraction reduces CO2 emissions

In this data sheet we show typical results of the analysis of Fe2+ (FeO), basicity and phase composition.

Iron sinter is an important feedstock material for the steel industry. Due to increased quality requirements and the need to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, the phase composition and chemistry of iron sinter need to be analyzed fast and precisely. The fuel consumption per ton iron ore sinter is approximately 60 kg coke. A small fuel saving due to improved process control already represents a significant saving in energy and costs.
