Metal and Coal Extrusion-RUSSIA, Russian Federation
Title: Extruded Briquette (Brex) – New Charge Component for Modern Metallurgy
Biography: Aitber Bizhanov
Stiff Vacuum Extrusion (SVE) - new agglomeration technology has been successfully applied for the briquetting of natural and anthropogenic raw-materials of the ferrous metallurgy. The results of the investigation of the Extrusion Briquettes (BREX) metallurgical properties showed that they can be efficiently used as the charge components of Blast Furnaces (BF), Direct Reduction Iron (DRI) reactors and Submerged Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF). The behavior of BREX under the reduction conditions has been investigated. The mechanism of the hot strength has been described. The examples of the industrial application of SVE for BFs and the results of the full-scale trials of SVE for DRI and Ferro Alloys production are represented in details. Evaluation of the prospects of the application of carbon containing BREX made of natural and anthropogenic raw materials in BF production is given.
