Abstract

Iron coke, as a new type of blast furnace burden is helpful for energy saving, emission reduction and green production of iron making. This study aims to investigate the strength degradation mechanism of iron coke prepared by mixed coal and Fe2O3 to provide a theoretical direction to improve its strength. Coking and pyrolysis experiments of mixed coal and Fe2O3 were carried out between 400 and 500 ℃ temperature. Gieseler plastometer and derivative thermogravimetric (DTG) showed that added Fe2O3 inhibited the thermoplasticity and pyrolysis process of mixed coal during coking. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) results showed that added Fe2O3 decreased the aromaticity and average stacking height, but increased the interlayer spacing of crystallite, aliphatic chain length and hydrocarbon-generating potential of mixed coal during coking. Further, gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GCsingle bondMS) analysis suggested that the added Fe2O3 inhibited the cleavage of Calsingle bondO, Calsingle bondS, Calsingle bondN, Calsingle bondCar and Calsingle bondCal bonds, reduced the generation of ethylbenzene, o-xylene and unbranched alkanes with carbon atoms in 24–26, thus decreased the amount of fluid phase generated in coking and ultimately degraded the strength of iron coke.
