Temperature distribution of the gas flux in blast furnaces

  • Yu. S. SemenovEmail author


The distribution of the temperature variation of the gas flux in the peripheral zone over the height (from the bosh to the upper levels of the shaft) and the temperature above the charge surface over the furnace radius was investigated in 2006 at a blast furnace at Metinvest Holding LLC, in various conditions: with gas-free charge and a wet blast; and with natural gas and/or pulverized-coal injection.
