0 Performance Test
PERFORMANCE TESTS, consisting of a two (2) day test to demonstrate the production of CDRI and
a separate three (3) day test for the production of HDRI/CDRI, will take place at a time mutually
agreed by the parties after the PROVISIONAL ACCEPTANCE. These tests will be conducted with
screened oxide feed consisting of 70% DR-grade pellets (similar in performance to CVRD, LKAB,
Samarco) and 30% DR-grade lump (similar in performance to MBR, Ferteco, Bailadila) as specified in
Section 4.4. Other feed mixes and/or iron ores may be used if approved by MIDREX.
The purpose of each PERFORMANCE TEST is to prove the PLANT’S capability to convert iron oxide
to PRODUCT at the rate and within the parameters specified.
The following guarantee parameters will be demonstrated during a two (2) day CDRI
PERFORMANCE TEST:
Average Adjusted Production Rate* 225 t/h minimum
Average Metallization* 93 %
Average Carbon 1.8 % minimum
Average Syngas Consumption 700 Nm 3/t maximum
Average Power Consumption 110 kWh/t maximum
Average Oxygen Consumption 20 Nm 3/t maximum
The following guarantee parameters will be demonstrated during a three (3) day HDRI/CDRI
PERFORMANCE TEST:
Average Adjusted Production Rate* 225 t/h minimum of HDRI plus CDRI, of Which at least 205
t/h will be produced as HDRI**
Average Metallization* 93 % for HDRI
Average Carbon 1.5 % (min.) for
HDRIAverage HDRI Temperature 550 °C (min.)
Average Syngas Consumption 700 Nm 3/t maximum
Average Power Consumption 110 kWh/t maximum
Average Oxygen Consumption 20 Nm 3/t maximum
C. CO2 REMOVAL SYSTEM
The process gas exiting the Top Gas Scrubber contains about 17 % CO 2. To re-use the process gas
as part of the reducing gas used in the MIDREX Shaft Furnace, the CO 2 level must be significantly
reduced. This will be accomplished using an Amine Type CO 2 Removal System.
In the CO2 removal system, the CO2 and sulfur gases in the process gas react with an ethanolamine
solution. The CO2 and sulfur gases are called the acid gases. The general reactions are:
2 RNH2 + H2S � 2 RNH3HS
2 RNH2 + CO2 + H2O � RNHCOONH3R
These reactions occur in the packed bed Absorber Column. The process gas is added to the bottom
of the Absorber Column and the ethanolamine solution is added to the top of the Absorber Column.
The “treated” process gas exits the top of the Absorber Column and contains approximately 2.5%
CO2 and minimal amounts of sulfur compounds. The “treated” process gas is mixed with the make-up
syngas upstream of the Reducing Gas Heater.

4.4 Iron Oxide Feed
The MIDREX DIRECT REDUCTION PROCESS is capable of reducing a wide variety of iron oxides.
More than 50 different types of oxide material have been used commercially in MIDREX PLANTS
around the world.
