The erosion of the blast furnace hearth has become one of the key factors affecting the life of the blast furnace, because of the limited on-line monitoring and control means in the blast furnace hearth area, the burn-through accidents of the blast furnace hearth and bottom occur occasionally. In this work, based on the self-built platform of heat flow regulation, the control mechanism of the high melting phases of TiC is studied. The on-line control mechanism of the hearth erosion by adding titanium-containing materials was discussed. There are three steps for the on-line control of iromaking using titanium-containing materials in blast furnace. Firstly, Ti(C, N) precipitated from the molten iron due to the decrease of temperature in the erosion zone of the hearth. Secondly, the viscosity of the molten iron increased with the precipitation of Ti(C, N) in the erosional cryogenic zone and temperature further decreasing. Finally, the protective layer, included pig iron matrix and Ti(C, N) solid fulcrum, formed because of the solidification of the molten iron. The protective layer can replace the corroded lining of the blast furnace to prevent its hearth from being eroded.
Key words: hearth erosion / Ti(C; N) / mechanism
