Harsh environment in Blast Furnace (BF) poses a big challenge for metallurgical industrial radar measurement of burden surface for ore and coke. The improved signal processing algorithm enhances the real-time performance. Antenna is specially designed for continuous stable signal acquirement, high temperature resistance and anti-dust ability. The experiment results illustrate that the single radar meets the accuracy requirement of solid bulk material. A new BF Burden Surface Measuring System is developed for real-time BF 3-D imaging. Distributed 6-radars array mounted on the top of 2500 m3 BF. A virtual 3-D imaging is achieved with a reconstruction algorithm of 6-radars array according to the actual shape of BF. 3-D imaging system with 6-radars array provides an improved technique for intelligent control of burden distribution during BF iron making process.
