Data from the Raahe Works sinter plant was analyzed using neural networks. The resulting models were used to investigate and optimize the production rate and the Reduction Degradation Index (RDI) that is an essential sinter quality indicator. Especially, the effects of the chemical composition of sinter, physical conditions of raw materials and factors reflecting the sintering event were studied. The outside-air temperature, fuel rate, sinter basicity, specific index of grain size distribution… CONTINUE READING
