An experimental investigation has been conducted to study the factors influencing the formation and behaviour of the primary slag phase formed in commercial iron ore pellets when reduced under conditions simulating those encountered in the iron blast furnace. Weight loss during reduction, metallographic and electron microprobe analysis techniques have been employed. Possible implications for blast furnace operation are discussed.
