Titangarnet (Ca3Fe2Si1.58Ti1.42O12), a significant mineral phase in sinter with vanadium titanium magnetite (VTM), was rarely investigated on its strenth and metallurgical properties. In this study, high purity (95%) of titangarnet was firstly prepared by chemical synthesis. The results of compressive strength tests showed that the compressive strength of titangarnet (14.21Mpa) is much lower than that of calcium ferrite (37.46Mpa). The melting performance of titangarnet was measured by hemisphere method and results indicated that the softening, melting, and flowing temperatures of titangarnet are 1453, 1483, and 1509 K, respectively. The reduction tests carried out by thermal analysis showed that the maximum reduction degree of titangarnet and calcium ferrite reached 0.65 and 0.94, respectively.
