Abstract
The properties of metallurgical coke are critical to the performance of the blast furnace for iron making. While extensive work has gone into understanding the relationship between the properties of coke and its behaviour in the blast furnace, the heterogeneous nature of coke makes understanding these relationships difficult. Herein we report the use of a laboratory produced coke analogue to examine the effects of minerals on the reactivity behaviour of coke in a pseudo-CRI test. The effects of a range of minerals on the reactivity of the coke analogue are demonstrated and the effects of binary combinations of silicon and iron bearing minerals are examined.
