Abstract:



Purpose.
This research aims to promote the assay of iron and reduce the phosphorus grade of the final DRI.


Methodology.
A high-phosphorus oolitic iron ore from Gara Djebilet deposit underwent the procedure of coal-based direct reduction (coal-based DR) followed by wet low-intensity magnetic separation (WLIMS). The effects of temperature, periods of time and Na2SO4 dosage on phosphorus removal, metallisation degree and iron recovery rate were tried and optimised. Furthermore, phase changes in iron oxides and the distributing features of phosphorus in both reduced and magnetic materials were investigated as well.


Findings.
The appropriate addition of sodium sulfate improves the Fe-P separation during the coal-based DR of Gara Djebilet mixed pellets.


Originality.
Using additives of CaO and sodium sulfate during the coal-based DR-magnetic separation of mixed pellets sourced from Gara Djebilet deposit.


Practical value. The results reveal that a final direct reduced powder (DRI) assaying 96 wt% Fe and 0.16 wt% P at a recovery rate of 97.72% was obtained when the ore-coal-CaO mixed pellets were reduced in the presence of 5 wt% Na
2SO4 at 1250 C for 30 min. Thus, the coal-based DR could be used as an alternative to the blast furnace (BF) route in the steelmaking industry from refractory iron ores.
