How to determine the maturity of coke or not?
The sulfur content of coke: refers to the percentage of sulfur content in coke. Sulfur is one of the harmful impurities in pig iron smelting. The sulfur content in the pig iron is more than 0.07%. 82.5% of the sulfur from blast furnace charge into the furnace comes from coke, so coke is the main source of sulfur. Sulfur content in coke directly affects the production of blast furnace. When the sulfur content in coke is greater than 1.6%, sulfur increased 0.1%, the amount of coke increased 1.8%, limestone amount increased by 3.7%, with the increasing of the amount of ore 0.3%, blast furnace production decreased 1.5 - 2%.
Ash in coke: the percentage of ash contained in metallurgical coke. The influence of coke ash on blast furnace smelting is very significant. Coke ash increased by 1%, coke consumption increased by 2 - 2.5%. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the ash content of coke.The volatile content in coke: refers to the percentage of the total amount of volatiles in metallurgical coke. Coke maturity can be judged according to the volatile content of coke. If the volatile content is greater than 1.5%, it is said that coke; volatile less than 0.5 - 0.7%, it is said to burn; generally mature metallurgical coke volatile is divided into about 1%.
The degree of fragmentation of coke: refers to the different levels of coke accounted for the percentage of total coke production. The particle size of coke is very important in blast furnace smelting. The coke block is uniform, the gap is large, the resistance is small, and the furnace condition runs well.Breaking strength of metallurgical coke (M40 drum index)The breaking strength of metallurgical coke is an index to reflect the breaking resistance of coke.Wear resistance of metallurgical coke (M10 drum index)The wear resistance of metallurgical coke is an index to reflect the wear resistance of coke.
