  • Improvement of process control in sintering plants in particular by means of the further development and operational application of a measuring pallet


A measuring pallet has been designed, built and tested for the investigation of the sintering process. The measuring pallet has been experimentally used in the sintering plant 3 of Thyssen Stahl AG. The concept of the measuring pallet is based on the arrangement of all the measuring sensors and the devices for data transmission in a measuring tube under the pallet. The variables measured were the waste gas temperature, the waste gas velocity and the waste gas composition. The research work included also sintering tests at the hot testing station. The purpose of these tests was to determine physical characteristic functions for the coefficients of resistance of the sinter and the ISO strength. The function of loosening devices has also been investigated within the scope of the research work with the aid of numerical simulation calculations.
