Reduction behaviour in Fastmet(TM) pellets

McElwain, S. and Weber, R. (1994) Reduction behaviour in Fastmet(TM) pellets. [Study Group Report]



Fastmet (TM), a process developed by the Midrex Corporation, produces iron for steelmaking by heating pellets composed of iron oxide and coal. Here we develop several simple models of the reduction process and confirm claims made by the manufacturer about the conversion time. These models can also be used to investigate the dependence of the conversion time on controlling parameters.
