Iron Ore Pellets

Berium Group is also able to supply niche products such as the iron ore pellets and fines for foundries, iron additives and ferroalloys.

The process of pelleting iron ore involves agglomerating iron fines into uniform sized lumps that can be charged into blast furnace or for production of Direct Reduced Iron (DRI). As uniformly standardized products, iron ore pellets have superior permeability and high blast furnace productivity. Iron ore pellets have higher purity, which contributes to faster reduction and higher metallization rates. Due to high density and heat retention capacity, iron ore pellets are environmentally friendly. The higher mechanical strength and abrasion resistance of the iron ore pellets enhance the production rate of sponge iron by about 20% under identical operating conditions.
