Coke, the product of a coking process,  is an important material in the metallurgical industry. In a blast furnace that produces iron, it functions as the main supplier of heat, a reducing reagent, and a support framework for other materials. Its quality directly influences the metallurgical process that occurs in a blast furnace. Coke-oven temperature (COT)  is a key parameter that reflects the thermal state of the whole oven. It directly influences both the quality of coke and the lifetime of an oven [1].
