sinter

To form a material from fusible powder by holding the pressed powder at a temperature just below its melting point for a period of time; the particles are fused (sintered) together, but the mass, as a whole, does not melt.

The sintered ore drum strength is detected using GB 8209-87.
Compared with the absence of oxygen enrichment, the sintered ore drum strength, antiwear properties, and yield improved after oxygen-enriched sintering.
This process accelerates the solid-phase reaction of the sintered material layer and the vertical sintering speed, such that the sintering utilization coefficient is improved.
The main components and FeO content of the sintered ore after different sintering oxygen enrichment times are shown in Table 6 and Figure 3.
