The new desulfurization technology in the iron ore sintering process with added urea is an effective way to reduce SO2 emission. In order to further study the mechanism of urea reducing SO2 emission and investigate the output distribution of sulfur in the sintering process, a sulfur balance calculation in the sintering process was carried out under the conditions without/with added urea. The results showed that, in the base test without adding urea, 59.93% of the total sulfur derived from the sintering raw materials entered the sinter and the rest entered the sintering flue gas. In the desulfurization test with added urea, 53.62% of the total sulfur entered the sinter, 36.22% was transformed into ammonium sulfate ((NHSO4) and only 4.77% entered the sintering flue gas. It was proved that the sulfur of the sintering raw materials could be effectively transformed into ammonium sulfate, corresponding to the new desulfurization technology in the sintering process with added urea, reducing the SO2 emission of the sintering flue gas.
Key words: Iron ore sintering / urea / flue gas desulfurization / sulfur balance
