Line for semi-industrial simulation of sintering processes (LS), a special research device, is the only comprehensive research installation of this type in Poland and one of few in Europe. Use of the said infrastructure will result in higher number of completed R&D works falling within the area: ”innovative primary technologies and recycling of recyclable materials” deemed to be key for Europe in realization of the programme of effective and sustainable use of resources. Research potential in form of LS line will facilitate development of international cooperation and active participation in EU research projects aimed at development of advanced technologies with particular consideration of waste utilization, thus contributing to sustainable development.
High-vacuum furnace is to be used for melting, re-melting and casting of metals and alloys under protective gas pressure. Maximum volume of melting is ca. 100 kg of steel. Temperature of operations up to 1700°C may be achieved in a safe manner with the regular power supply of average frequency 150 kW.
In April 2012, the Institute for Ferrous Metallugy installed and started up VIM LAB 30-75 vacuum induction furnace purchased at SECO/WARWICK GROUP. The furnace is to be used for steel and alloy melting and casting. Maximum weight of cast slab is 30 kg.
The stand is used for execution of sintering tests of iron ore as well as other materials. The stand, initially designed and developed by IMŻ, was subject to extensive revamping in 2013 by Przedsiębiorstwo Inżynierskie BIPROHUT Sp. z o.o. in Gliwice.
Stationary system for continuous analysis of the composition of exhaust gases by ABB is composed of the following analyzers: AO2000-URAS26, EL3020-URAS26 i EL3020-MAGNOS206.
The system facilitates sucking and purification of sintering proces waste gases in ceramic filter as well as transfer thereof to the chimney. It may also be used (following proper setting) in transfer and dedusting of gases and polluted air generated above other devices and research stands located in the bay.
ATON MOS 20/9/3 device effectively cleans process gases from organic contaminations ( volatile organic compounds, CO, NOx), by neutralization of noxious substances and after burning of carbohydrates in high temperatures. This technology is based on patented method MOS (Microwave Oxidation System), owing to which it is not a source of greenhouse gases emission.
Device is used for assessment of mechanical properties of coke as per Micum drum method, as well as for physical simulation of blast furnace sinter grain degradation, occurring during its transportation and sifting on the way from sinter plant to blast furnaces.
5- deck vibrating sieve is used for screening of dry materials into any selected fractions depending on the number of sieves and size of mesh.
It is composed of three basic subassemblies: drop chamber facilitating drop of material from the level of meters, along with 2 tanks, base – carrying base with drive, safety barriers and loading truck.
Turbine mixer (highly intensive) with control of pan and mixer spin is used for mixing and pelletizing of up to 200 kgs of fine-grained materials, i.e. dusts, sludges, slags, ores and ore concentrates, etc., in a wide grain-size range.
In the period 2008/2009 a new laboratory system for briquetting of fine grained material was assembled in Primary Processing Group of the Instytut Metalurgii Żelaza.
ThermaCAM PM 595 Thermo-vision camera: measurement range: - 40 to 2000oC; measurement accuracy: +/- 2oC or 2% of the range; thermal sensitivity (NETD): <0,1oC (at 30oC; spectral range: 7,5-13,0 µm; type of detector: FPA (320 x 240 pixels; detector's frequency: 50 Hz; image type: infrared image; additional equipment: removable optics.
In November 2009, the Primary Processing Group of the Institute for Ferrous Metallurgy started up a unit for thermal analysis, composed of NETZSCH, model: STA 449 F3 Jupiter thermal analyzer, facilitating simultaneous TG-DTA analyses and interchangeably TG-DSC analyses, as well as coupled quadrupole mass spectrometer - NETZSCH QMS 403 Aëolos.
In June 2009, Primary Processing Group of the Institute for Ferrous Metallurgy was equipped with analog Multi-Lab®III device, which facilitates measurements and calculations of the following parameters: temperature and activity of oxygen in liquid steel;
content of carbon in steel; content of aluminum in steel for low levels of oxygen activity (below 3.0 ppm of active oxygen); temperature of liquid steel and its liquidus temperature; percentage content of FeO in slag.
The device is composed of high-temperature tubular furnace with microprocessor temperature control, CCD video camera with PC filter system along with software. Linking of the furnace and video camera with computer equipped with image analysis software facilitates full automation of determining the characteristic melting point of solid fuel, slag and ashes along with results visualization and archiving.
