Hot Transport – HOTLINK®
August 1, 2014 Download
The HOTLINK® System delivers HDRI to an adjacent EAF at up to 700° C by positioning the MIDREX® Shaft Furnace just outside and above the exterior wall of the meltshop. DRI is discharged hot into a surge bin and then fed directly to the EAF with minimal heat loss. Low velocity gravity transfer keeps physical degradation of HDRI to a minimum, and there is no re-oxidation of the HDRI due to the sealed design of the HOTLINK® System. The HOTLINK® System is designed with options to produce hot briquetted iron (HBI) or cold DRI (CDRI) without stopping production when the EAF is offline.
