X-ray diffraction for iron ores sinter analysis
This application notes describes the benefits of resolving the mineralogical sinter composition to optimize sinter quality and operational efficiency.
Iron ore 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 ore sinter requires faster and innovative analysis methods.
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.
