An organic binder for iron ore pelletisation
Sefogel is an organic binders for the iron ore pelletisation, it is free flowing fine powder and an effective replacement ( full or partial ) for bentonite which contains lots of silica.
Sefogel is also used as universal dust suppressants.
Sefogel is an organic binder used to agglomerate a wide variety of mineral particles.
It is specially designed to reduce pellet dusting, to improve surface quality, to lower surface moisture and to increase dry strength of iron ore pellets.
The quality of fired pellet is noticeable to bentonite pellets and pellets are able to reduce the “pressure drop” on the travelling grate.
Another advantage of Sefogel organic binder is that they are burned off during induration so improving pellet porosity which benefits iron oxide reduction. The lower silica pellet reduces the coke and flux requirements in the blast furnace.
The Fe content in the pellet is increased.
Sefogel, an organic binder is superior than cellulose-based binders.
