Improvement of productivity by stand-support sintering in commercial sintering machines
“Stand-support sintering”, that is supporting the load of the sinter cake with bars or plates attached to pallets, has been developed and applied practically to the sintering machines in Kimitsu works, Nippon Steel. The stands start to support the load of the sinter cake just after the top layer is melted and starts to solidify. Shrinkage is stopped and the gas flow rate is increased when the stands start to support the load of the sinter cake. It was found that sintering time was shortened and productivity was improved in actual sintering machines.
