Influence of the total static gas pressure difference on blast-furnace performance



Further evidence is found to confirm that blast-furnace performance is not always improved when the gas pressure in the furnace is increased as a result of artificial drag in the gas-supply network. What is important is not simple increase in the gas pressure but optimization of this pressure and also the total pressure difference in the furnace in specific operating conditions.
