Iron ore pelletizing systems. Iron ore fines are agglomerated into pellets and then indurated using a furnace to create iron ore pellets. These are typically fed to a blast furnace or DRI plant as part of the process to make steel.
A brief introduction to recent developments in iron ore pelletizing is provided in this chapter, including the world output of fired pellets, pellet production processes, preparation of pellet feed, inorganic and organic binders, and new additives.
Iron Ore Pelletizing Process: An Overview IntechOpen
However, the content of iron in ore deposits has deteriorated and lowgrade iron ore has been processed. The fines resulting from the concentration process must be agglomerated for use in iron and steelmaking. This chapter shows the status of the pelletizing process with a special focus on binders. Bentonite is the most used binder due to favorable mechanical and metallurgical pellet

In 1971 the first Grangcold Pelletizing Plant came into operation at Grangesberg, Sweden where from a rich magnetite low phosphoric concentrate and a cement binder (Portland cement clinker and granulated blast furnace slag) selffluxing blast furnace pellets are produced.
