An exmaple of the CM100 used at OneSteel Whyalla steelworks is used to measure the moisture of coke, sinter and iron ore, before it enters the blast furnace. This provides valuable real time feedback to both the blast furnace and coke ovens operators enabling them to adjust their practices accordingly.
The measurement of coke moisture allows more precise control of the dry weight of coke being charged to the blast furnace. Variation in coke moisture, which is not accounted/adjusted for, can have an adverse effect on the thermal control of the blast furnace process and also the chemistry of the iron and slag produced. Outlined in this paper are the benefits of having real time analysis for coke moisture in the operation of the blast furnace at OneSteel as well as some technical information on the CM100.
Features and Advantages of the CM100 Coke Moisture Monitor:
- It is particularly suited to measuring the moisture content of coke and materials such as metallic concentrates.
- Experience has shown that the Fast Neutron Gamma Transmission technique is capable of measuring moisture to within about 0.3 wt% (at one standard deviation) for bed depths ranging from about 100mm to more than 400mm.
- All users are attracted to the ease of installation and reliable operation of the CM100, which now means that there is an increasing emphasis on the CM100 to provide a quality control solution.
