Mar 30, 2021 The shaft furnace is where iron ore is converted to metallic. Iron oxide, in pellet or lump form, is introduced through a proportioning hopper at the top of the shaft furnace. As the iron ore descends through the furnace by gravity flow, it is heated, and the oxygen is removed from the iron ore (reduction) by counterflowing gases that have a

MIDREX® — THE LEADING DRI PRODUCTION PROCESS

Midrex is a gas-based shaft furnace process that converts iron oxides in the form of pellets or lump ore into direct reduced iron (DRI). The Midrex technology is highly adaptive to our customers’ needs, which is reflected in a broad variety of configurations. The performance of Midrex plants typically exceeds nominal capacity ratings.
