|What's special / Useful in this book
|This book describes the Technology of Iron Making as well as the practical aspects of the processes involved in the production. • This book includes Blast Furnace Plant and Processes, Hot Blast Stores, Raw Materials for Iron Making, Fuel, Burden Distribution and Preparation, Properties of Blast Furnace Charge Materials, Operations, Refractories and Accessories, DRI, EAF and SR processes. This book covers the syllabus of B. Tech (Metallurgy) and will be very helpful for AMIE, AIIM, Diploma students of Metallurgy and other competitions.
|Production of iron largely depends upon the technical knowledge and practical experiences of the furnace operator. It is observed that in a steel plant two similar blast furnaces do not behave in similar fashion, although same facility is provided to each furnace. This descripancy is tried to solve by both practical and technical skills. In this book, I have tried to describe the basic technology of iron making as well as the practical aspects of the processes involved in the production. This book covers the syllabus of B. Tech (Metallurgy). This book will be very helpful for A.MI.E., A.I.I.M. and diploma students of metallurgy. I am indebted to Sri Kratu Khanna and Sri Kumar Sandip of Khanna Publishers, who encouraged me a lot to write this book.
