Abstract

In this review paper described are possible chemical reactions and their thermodynamic analysis during direct reduction. The sticking mechanism during direct reduction in the fluidized bed was analysed, and the reasons for the sticking appearance explained. The most important parameters on the sticking were analysed. The ways for prevention and observation were considered. The plan for experimental investigations was proposed. The investigations could be performed in fluidized bed reactor. Coal will be used as inert material. Separately, the influence volatile content in the coal on the reduction process and sticking appearance, will be analysed. As results of these investigations would be some improvements of the method direct reduction of iron ore in the fluidized bed.
