    Abstract: Steelmaking is the second step in producing steel from iron ore. In this stage, impurities such as sulfur, phosphorus, and excess carbon are removed from the raw iron, and alloying elements such as manganese, nickel, chromium, and vanadium are added to produce the exact steel required. Modern steelmaking processes are broken into two categories: pr... Show More

    Abstract: Prior to dispatch of sinter to the blast furnace for hot metal production, the sinter product from the sinter cooler is screened to remove smaller/finer particles. The undersize so generated is called internal return fines, which are generally recirculated into the sintering machine. A very high level of internal return fines generation limits the ... Show More
