Dec 28, 2015 Pelletizing of iron ore is a method of Swedish origin, patented in 1912 by AG Andersson (Yamaguchi et al., 2010). The process was developed in the USA in the 1940s, and the first commercial plant started operation in Babbitt, Minnesota in 1952. The first iron ore pellet plant of the grate-kiln type was established at Humboldt Mine, Michigan in 1960.
2) Pelletizing on a disc pelletizer. The conditioned material enters the pan, and as the pan rotates, the iron ore tumbles against itself, growing in size. Once the pellets reach their desired size, they exit the pan and proceed to drying. 3) Drying in a rotary drum dryer.

Because of these processes, a fine granulometry is produced, and thus iron agglomeration process is necessary. There are several agglomeration processes including briquetting, extrusion, nodulization, pelletizing and sintering, although pelletizing and sintering are the most widely used, and especially sintering process (70% blast furnace load).
Introduction to iron ore agglomeration Agglomeration is the process of particle size enlargement and most commonly refers to the upgrading of material fines into larger particles. Agglomeration types Briquetting - Briquette Extrusion - Extruded briquetting Sintering - Sinter Pelletizing - Pellet n) Non-n) 47th Ironmaking
Composite agglomeration process (CAP) of iron ore fines has been proved an effective route for ironmaking burden production, and is characterized by low the fuel consumption and high the productivity compared with the traditional sintering process. Sintering behavior of pelletizing feed in CAP has not been studied fully yet.
agglomerated feed. Sinter is better suited to this practice than pellets. Iron Ore Agglomeration Sinter Process The sinter process was introduced around 1910 to treat flue dust extracted from blast furnace exhaust gases. It was quickly adapted to agglomerate fine ore and its
Feb 23, 2013 Pelletizing is a process which involves mixing of very finely ground particles of iron ore fines having a size which is less than 200 mesh (0.074 mm) with additives like bentonite and then shaping them into near oval/spherical balls having size in the range of 8 mm to 16 mm in diameter by a pelletizer and hardening the balls by firing with a fuel.
Used in the agglomeration process to form fine iron ore into uniform green iron ore pellets. State-of-the-art operators control station allowing operator to locally start and stop the disc, adjust the speed of the disc with a potentiometer and view the disc speed on a digital display.
