Flux for blast furnace
FluMag® flux with a high magnesium oxide content is applied when smelting iron in a blast furnace, producing sinter in sintering and pelletizing.
FluMag® flux with a high magnesium oxide content is designed to introduce magnesium to a blast furnace both directly and via agglomerate and sinter, improving its quality (based on Japanese patents) with the aim of reducing the viscosity of blast-furnace slag and improving its desulphurating capacity for more efficient iron smelting.
FluMag® is applied in the sinter-feed mixture in quantities that equate to 0.5-2 % of furnace burden weight. It reduces the tendency of pore formation, excessive magnesium oxide dissolving in initial sinter-feed mixture materials, and reduces slag formation.
FluMag® flux with a high magnesium oxide content is applied when manufacturing iron-ore agglomerate with the optimum amount of FluMag® flux introduced at 2%, improving pellet quality characteristics.
It stabilizes the behavior of magnesium oxide in blast-furnace slag when melting sinter and agglomerate in a blast furnace, and increases furnace capacity.
