Maximization of non-coking coal in coal blend is eloquent interest among researchers in coke making throughout the world. To maximize the non-coking coals in coal blend with the scarce and expensive coking coals is an essential practice in the iron and steel industry. The fundamental aspect of the coal blending theory of low value coals to produce good quality of metallurgical coke in non-recovery coke making process was investigated in this study by using the composite coking potential technique. The implementation of the technique has yielded use of up to 25% pulverized coal injection, 20% raw petroleum coke as a component of coal blend. Results show that the coal blend having composite coking potential value of 4.8 is desired to achieve the targeted coke strength after reaction of 65.
Key words: composite coking potential / pulverized coal injection coal / raw petroleum coke / non-recovery coke making / coke quality
