Abstract

Primary distribution of coal gas in blast furnace raceway has an important effect on blast furnace ironmaking process. The coal gas component concentration distribution was studied experimentally using a three-dimensional cold model. The results showed that CH4 concentration diminishes along with the height increasing on vertical section of raceway, and the concentration is the highest in the bottom of raceway. CH4 concentration increases gradually along the raceway depth with the lowest concentration value in front of the tuyere. The distribution of CH4 concentration has different characteristics in different raceway zones.
