the common wall to heat and carbonize the coking coal placed in theadjacent coal chamber. Number of ovens built in series one after the other form a coke oven battery. At VSP there are 3 coke oven batteries, 7 meter tall and having 67 ovens each. Each oven is having a volume of 41.6 cmand can hold upto 31.6 tonnes of dry coal charge. The carbonization takes place at 1000-1050
c in absence of air for 16-18 house.The coal chemicals such as Benzole (& etc products, far landsite products), Ammonium sulphate etc. are extracted in coal chemical plantfrom C.O gas.
Sinter is a hard and porous ferrous material obtained byagglomeration of iron use fines, coke breeze, lime stone fined, metallurgicalwastes viz. Flue dust mill scales, LD slag etc.
Sinter is a better feed materialto Blast Furnace in composition to iron are lumps and its usage in Blast arcand its usage in Blast furnace help in increasing productivity, decreasing thecoke rate and improving the quality of hot metal produced.Sintering is done in 2
of 312 sq.m. Sinter machines of duright lloydtype by heating the prepared feed on a continuous metallic belt made of pallets at 1200-1300
