|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
A novel flash ironmaking process is being developed at the University of Utah. A flash reactor with 0.8 m inner diameter, 1.5 m length, and three layers of refractory, insulation, and carbon steel forms the core of the facility. The reactor was designed to be capable of operating at temperatures up to 1600°C. The overall facility is described graphically from the burner, through which natural gas and oxygen are fed, and the solid feeding port to the flare stack, with the mini-pilot reactor as the centerpiece. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) and the control scheme used for the control and monitoring of the process are outlined. The safety precautions considered for different parts of the process and the emergency shutdown capability, provided to ensure the highest safety level in operating the mini-pilot plant, are presented. A CFD model for the flash reactor under development is also presented.
