The influence of the coke strength M25 and abradability M10 and the proportion of >80 mm coke pieces on the furnace productivity and coke consumption is analyzed on the basis of mean monthly operational data for 2000-, 2700-, and 5000-m3 blast furnaces. The influence of these coke parameters on blast-furnace operation is more pronounced for larger furnaces.
