Of the 16 blast furnaces currently injecting coal only two consistently inject over 50 lb of natural gasTHM but the quantity of coal injected is limited because of limitations in the coal preparation facilities. Very little data have been 3 Injection of Natural Gas in the Blast Furnace

An update on blast furnace granular coal injection

Dec 31 1997 A blast furnace coal injection system has been constructed and is being used on the furnace at the Burns Harbor Division of Bethlehem Steel. The injection system was designed to deliver both granular coarse and pulverized fine coal. Construction was completed on schedule in early 1995.

Injection of coal and waste plastics in blast furnaces

Pulverised coal injection PCI is a well established technology. It is practised in most if not all countries with coke-based BFs and new BFs are nearly always fitted with PCI capability. Waste plastics injection WPI is less Injection of coal and waste plastics in blast furnaces 5 commonly carried out with only a few ironmaking plants in

Simulation of Pulverized Coal Injection in a Blast Furnace

Dec 14 2007 A three-dimensional multiphase CFD model using an Eulerian approach is developed to simulate the process of pulverized coal injection into a blast furnace. The model provides the detailed fields of fluid flow velocity temperatures and compositions as well as coal mass distributions during the devolatilization and combustion of the coal.

Charcoal Behaviour by Its Injection into the Modern

Boudouard reaction occurs in the coke blast furnace at higher temperatures. Therefore the degree of indirect reduc-tion in the furnace shaft is higher and consequently carbon monoxide content in top gas and its caloric value are lower. Effect of charcoal injection on large blast furnaces and at high injection rates was studied up to now .
