. The solid charge materials like sinter, sized iron ore, etc. are charged in the vertical shaft of the Blast Furnace at top and hot air blast is blown through the tuyeres located at the bottom. The oxygen from the hot air combines with the carbon of the coke and generates heat and carbon monoxide. The gases while ascending upwards react with the charge. Eventually the charge melts and hot metal and slag are produced and tapped out. The cooled gas is also used as fuel in the plant. The Paul-wurth, bell loss top system is installed for furnace charging. There are four hot blast stoves for each furnace with a total heating surface of 224,000 m2. High temperature zone is lined with silica and mullite corundum refractories, medium temperature zone, with kaoline refractories and low temperature zone with fire clay refractories. Its novel circular cast house with four tap holes ensures continuous tapping of hot metal.
