Chinese people firstly found Titanium could be used as protection to the blast furnaces on 1980 in Chinese state-owned LIUZHOU IRON AND STEEL GROUP and firstly started to produce the titanium bearing pellets on 1999.
Advantages of the material:
1. Fewer consumption, only 30-40KG titanium bearing pellets needed for 1 ton pig iron
2. Fewer slag materials involved, the coke consumption reduced, narrow cohesive zone, increasing the pig iron yield and reduced the cost eventually.
3. The size is rather regular and the quality is stable, good smelting performance, high compressive strength and tumbler index, improving the breathability of the blast furnace.
4. Improve the steel production and increase the strength of the pig iron (10-20Mpa could be increased).
