Reoxidation Rate of Sponge Iron Pellets, Briquettes and Iron Powder Compressed to Various Compressions in Air


Materials Engineering, University of Tehran


The reoxidation rate of sponge iron pellets and briquettes and oxidation of pure iron powder with compressibility between 27% and 55% in air and within the temperature range 300-900°C has been investigated. Factors affecting the oxidation rate are presented. These include the effect of temperature, compressibility, and sintering of Fe-powder before and during the oxidation.
