Thermal System's Sponge iron heat recovery boilers are a specific type of waste heat recovery boilers that are used in the production of sponge iron, also known as direct reduced iron (DRI). Sponge iron is a form of iron that is produced by heating iron ore in the absence of oxygen and the heat recovery methods for sponge iron are methodically studied and deployed by us.
During the production process, a significant amount of heat is generated by the exothermic reaction of reducing iron ore. This heat is usually wasted, but with the use of Thermal System's sponge iron heat recovery boilers, it can be captured and used to generate steam for power generation or process heating.
Thermal System's boilers are designed to recover heat from the hot gases generated during sponge iron production and use it to generate steam. This can help to increase energy efficiency in the sponge iron production process and reduce energy costs and emissions.
Additionally, our Sponge iron heat recovery boilers are also used in the Steel industry as DRI is used as a feed in Electric Arc Furnace(EAF) Steel making process.
