AGGLOMERATION IN ERAMET - SINTEF
Typical sinter mix consisted of 1-10mm Mn-ore fines, <6mm coke fines, return sinter fines and flux additives. Materials are pelletised in a rotating drum where moisture additions are made. The raw sinter mix is then layered on the hearth layer to a total depth of about 500mm. Ignition of the coke in the mix is by horizontal burners.
