Agglomerated raw materials

The objective for carrying out studies on agglomeration is to get the material for its further use in a metallurgical process.

Properties of agglomerates can be conditionally divided into strength properties and properties connected with a thermal stability.

In the laboratory of the Institute the following tests are conducted:

  • Strength at downthrow as per GOST;
  • Abrasiveness in a shelf drum;
  • Recoverability;
  • Temperature of beginning and end of softening;
  • Briquettes thermal strength;
  • Abrasiveness at recovery.
