Steel Making Process Blast Furnace Stove

Hot Blast Stove Heat recovery This recovery scheme if implemented will lead to better utilization of BF gas. Currently certain units like forge plant are starving for gas. Further, the quality of combustion air (moisture level) is pretty high. This has been causing problems in the stoves working efficiency.

Calculations Flue gas sensible heat = Mass flow rate * Cp * Difference in temperature = 36000 * 1.43 * 1.05 * (300 - 30)/3600 = 3861 kW approx. Assuming the heat recovery efficiency as 50 %, Heat recovery rate is 1950 kW approx. Heat recovery rate for Combustion Air (kW) = Mass flow rate * Cp * (Outlet Temperature – Inlet Temperature) Outlet Temperature of Combustion Air = 296 degree Celsius Case 1 (No recovery system):- Heat produced by combustion air in kW = Mass flow rate * Specific Heat * Temperature = 1650 kW Case 2 (Recovery system installed):- Heat produced by combustion air in kW = 3100 kW Reused Heat = 1500 kW Reused Heat in kW = Volumetric flow rate * Heating value + Mass flow rate * Specific Heat * Temperature Amount of BF gas saved = 1500 kW * 3600 / (3150 + 1.335*1.04*318) = 1503 Nm 3 /hr gas is saved

BOF Heat Recovery system Oxidation process - Reduce the carbon content in the liquid metal. Flue gas has lot of CO content. Suggestions:- – The gas can be used to produce process steam. – BOF gas can be collected in a gas holder and just along with BF gas. Problem for this implementation :- Small convertor size.

Calculations Volumetric flow rate (Nm 3 /Ton) 1.5 * 36 Nm 3 /T = 54 Nm 3 /T Density (kg/m 3 )1.43 (Theoretical value) Specific heat (kJ/kg-K)1.05 (Theoretical value) Inlet temperature (degree Celsius) 1800 Outlet temperature (degree Celsius) 1200 Flue gas sensible heat = Mass flow rate * Cp * Difference in temperature = 54*700/24 * 1.43 * 1.05 * (1800 - 1200)/3600 = 400 kW per hour approx
