Iron Pelletising

Bentonite is a binding agent in the production of iron ore pallets. Kutch Bentonite has higher natural percentage of iron, which is ideal in isolating iron ore pellets with the maximum percentage of iron.

The process of pelletization enables converting Iron Ore Fines into “Uniformed Sized Iron Ore Pellets” that can be charged into the blast furnaces or for Production of Direct Reduced Iron (DRI).

Pellets are uniform size, with purity of 63%- 65% contributing to faster reduction and high metallization rates.

Pellets with their high, uniform mechanical strength and high abrasive strength increase production of sponge iron by 25% to 30% with same amount of fuel.

Advantages of Our Products

  • Our Bentonite can withstand higher temperatures since it contains more % of metal.
  • The grade is also having higher natural percentage of Iron which is ideal in isolating ore pellets with the maximum percentages of Iron.
  • The Iron Ore Pelletization plant can be able to maintain active clay levels with reduced additions of Bentonite since IOP grade bentonite have high Mont values.

Iron Pelletising Bentonites

BW-GRAND-IOP

BW-GRAND-IOP is a very efficient and economical binding agent and is widely accepted for pelletization of iron / teconite ores.

  • Free flow fine powder, 80% finer than 200 mesh.
  • Higher water update &retention(Water Plate)that develops actual bond between particles.
  • Contains low silica, therefore no extra slag formation.
  • Good Water absorption enables easy formation of pellets. Grannules grow fast as they roll.
  • Binding strength maintained before and after drying of pellets.
  • Pallet shape retained even on rough handling.
