May 20, 2017· The smelting, or reduction, of iron ore is a thermochemical reaction, wherein the iron oxides are reduced to metallic iron. Impurities in the ore are melted out of the ore in the form of slags – most commonly iron silicates – while the iron itself is never truly molten. Instead the product of the smelt is a spongy mass of iron and slag
The scarcity of coking coals for blast-furnace use and the high cost of coke ovens are two reasons for the emergence of this other alternative iron-making process. Smelting reduction employs two units: in the first, iron ore is heated and reduced by gases…

Other items, beyond those required for conventional pellets, such as reductant bins and conveyors, add little to the depreciation charge per ton of product. Prereduced pellet plants cost more per product ton than those for oxide spheres largely because there is more iron in the metallized pellets.

The iron ore from which iron and steel are made is an oxide, that is, a chemi cal compound of iron (Fe) and oxy gen (0). Common forms of ore are hematite (Fe20a) and magnetite (Fea04)' For the ore to be made into iron the oxygen atoms must be separated from the iron atoms by the process known as reduction. The separation is usually achieved
