Engineering Manager, Mines and Metals Engineering, Iran
Mr. Hossein Aziztaemeh graduated in Chemical Engineering in 1999 and began designing in mines and metals section in some esteemed companies. He has 19 years’ experience in this field and involved in several industrial EPC projects as designer, project manager and engineering manager. He has been member of project teams of several huge projects same as copper concentration, iron concentration, pelletizing plant, mines, steelmaking and rolling. He has had more than 10 presentations in field of DRI technology. His special profession is DRI technology and as designer he has involved in designing of more than 16 DRI plants.
Abstract: The PERED® Direct Reduction Process is a New Improved energy efficient technology converts iron oxides, in the form of pellets or lump ore, by reacting with CO & H2 to highly reduced products like CDRI, HDRI & HBI suitable for steel making with flexibility to work with different raw material and energy sources and reducing the overall cost with salient features as below.
PERED® Vertical Shaft Furnace designed to improve the solid & gas flow patterns to improvise the reaction being taken placedesigned to have higher production rate / volume of reduction zone.
Decrease clustering possibility
Solid material flow regulation with less fines generation, Eliminates possible pollution due to leakage, lower maintenance cost & utilization of available heat for In-situ reforming and higher Carbon formation.
Top & Cooling Gas off takes to reduce fines carry over to decrease oxide loss and to improve life & efficiency of Ducts, Scrubbers & Clarifier
State of the art 360 degree rotating independently controlled burden feeders
Utilization of Process Gas Compressor capacity with less power consumption.
High efficient recuperator along with steam generation to decrease the exit flue gas as low as 250 Deg.C. With lower NG consumption with improved life for tube bundles.
Safe & High efficient Reformer with Super active PERFORMEX catalysts
At present three plants rated capacity 0.8MTPA are in operation in Iran and results near to the expected values even with the inferior quality pellets. Two more plants under construction. Development of Jumbo module with higher capacity up to 2.0 MTPA with different kind of products like CDRI, HBI & Hot charging to EAF are under progress. With the success of the PERED® Technology, More plants are expected to use this technology in Iran as well all around the globe.
