    Extracting iron from iron ore using a Blast Furnace. The common ores of iron are both iron oxides, and these can be reduced to iron by heating them with carbon in the form of coke. Coke is produced by heating coal in the absence of air. Coke is cheap and provides both the reducing agent for the reaction and also the heat source. A blast furnace is a special type of furnace for smelting iron from furnaces are very large. They can be up to 60 metres ( ft) tall and 15 metres (49 ft) in blast furnace is the biggest chemical furnaces are also called high ovens.. A blast furnace is usually built with a steel case and bricks made of magnesium oxide or other refractory material .

    In a blast furnace, which is generally used to obtain pure iron from its ore, the following reactions take place. C + O2 --> CO2 + Heat. C + CO2 --> 2CO. In the blast furnace, reduction of iron oxides takes place in different temperature ranges. Coke is burnt to get the required temperature upto about K. The temperature is lower in the upper part. Hence, the reduction of iron oxides take place at lower portion. The higher temperature range, depend on the points of corresponding intersections in the ΔrG0 vs T plots. (Given in ncert book.

    lower part of the blast furnace. The behaviour of silicon depends on several factors, like carbon contents and temperatures in different zones, reactions with FeO, gas pressures in the system, etc. Because of this it has been seen as important to study several different factors in the lower part of the blast furnace. Iron oxides can come to the blast furnace plant in the form of raw ore, pellets or sinter. The raw ore is removed from the earth and sized into pieces that range from to inches. This ore is either Hematite (Fe 2 O 3) or Magnetite (Fe 3 O 4) and .

A Blast furnace is a gigantic, steel stack lined with refractory brick where the concentrated iron ore, coke, and limestone are dumped from the top, and a blast of hot air is blown into the bottom. Iron blast-furnace reactions book All the three ingredients are crushed into small round pieces and mixed and put on a hopper which controls the input.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Kinney, S.P. (Selwyne Perez), Iron blast-furnace reactions. Washington, Govt. Print. Off., In the blast furnace, there are several chemical reactions taking place; that eventually result in the desired product (iron) being extracted.

The coke (carbon) burns with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide. This reaction is exothermic. The CO 2 then reacts with. Blast furnace iron has limited engineering applications. It is mainly for use for iron castings, and for abrasion resistance and heat-transfer applications.

Most blast furnace iron is the raw material for oxygen steelmaking, where the molten iron is refined to produce the world’s most popular metal for engineering applications—rolled steel.

The Iron Blast Furnace: Theory and Practice presents the significant role of iron blast furnace by which iron is efficiently and rapidly reduced from ore and it is the basis for all primary steelmaking.

This book discusses the importance of Book Edition: 1. This Iron blast-furnace reactions book done in a blast furnace. The most common ore of iron is called haematite (iron(iii) oxide). Its formula is Fe 2 O 3.

Haematite is added to the top of the furnace along with coke (i.e. carbon) and limestone. Three reactions take place during this extraction. Firstly, the carbon in the blast furnace burns with the hot air to form carbon File Size: KB. Blast furnace, a vertical shaft furnace that produces liquid metals by the reaction of a flow of air introduced under pressure into the bottom of the furnace with a mixture of metallic ore, coke, and flux fed into the top.

Blast furnaces are used to produce pig iron from iron ore for subsequent. The Iron Blast Furnace: Theory and Practice Paperback – January 1, by J. Peacey (Author) › Visit Amazon's J.

Peacey Page. Find all the books, read about the author, and more. See search results for this author. Are you an author. Cited by: A blast furnace is a type of metallurgical furnace used for smelting to produce industrial metals, generally pig iron, but also others such as lead or copper.

Blast refers to the combustion air being "forced" or supplied above atmospheric pressure. In a blast furnace, fuel (), ores, and flux are continuously supplied through the top of the furnace, while a hot blast of air (sometimes with. The Iron Blast Furnace: Theory and Practice presents theoretical, experimental, and operational evidence about the iron blast furnace as well as a mathematical description of its operation.

This book includes a set of equations that accurately describe stoichiometric and enthalpy balances for the process and which are consistent with observed Book Edition: 1.

Blast furnace gas is produced during the iron oxide reduction in blast furnace iron making in which iron ore, coke and limestone are heated and melted in a blast furnace and is an indigenous process gas of the steelworks industry (Pugh et al., ).

Blast furnace gas has a high carbon monoxide (CO) content and a low heating value, typical. The Iron Blast Furnace: Theory and Practice presents the significant role of iron blast furnace by which iron is efficiently and rapidly reduced from ore and it is the basis for all primary steelmaking.

This book discusses the importance of blast-furnace process as a complete operation.4/5(2). These reactions can be given as follows:At -- K lower temperature range in the blast furnace. 3 Fe2O3 + CO gives 2 Fe3O4 + CO2 equation Fe3O4 + 4 CO gives 3Fe + 4 CO2 equation The ironmaking blast furnace (BF) is an efficient chemical reactor for producing liquid iron from solid iron ore, where the solids of coke and iron ore are charged in alternative layers and.

The term solution loss is discussed and defined. Examples are given showing that solution loss may either have a favorable or unfavorable effect on blast furnace performance. A theory is advanced explaining the contradictions encountered during Author: James F.

Peters. Similar to the blast furnace, the cupola is a refractory-lined steel stack 20 to 35 feet (6 to 11 metres) high, resting on a cast-iron base plate with four steel legs. The bottom of the cupola furnace has two hinged doors supported in the closed position by a centre prop.

The charge is placed a giant chimney called a blast furnace. The blast furnace is around 30 metres high and lined with fireproof bricks. Hot air is blasted through the bottom.

Several reactions take place before the iron is finally produced. Oxygen in the air reacts with coke to give carbon dioxide: The limestone breaks down to form carbon dioxide. Production of pig iron in a blast furnace 4 1. PRODUCTION OF PIG IRON IN A BLAST FURNACE CHAPTER DIVISION Basic terms Description of a blast furnace plant Main parts of a blast furnace, description and function Composition.

The purposes of using coke are reduction of Iron ore to metallic iron providing chemical reactions, act as a source of carbon and provide a source of heat in the Blast furnace, that is behave as. Types of iron and steel. Cast iron has already been mentioned above.

This section deals with the types of iron and steel which are produced as a result of the steel-making process. Wrought iron. If all the carbon is removed from the iron to give high purity iron, it is known as wrought iron.

Wrought iron is quite soft and easily worked and has. The blast furnace is the symbol of the steel industry. Like other building types which attract the Bechers, it is also an endangered industrial species. Essentially giant, cone-shaped circular stoves, blast furnaces dominate the cityscapes of Pittsburgh, Youngstown, and Birmingham much as religious structures dominated medieval : Bernd Becher, Hilla Becher.
