A kinetic model has been developed to describe the uniform conversion of a self reducing mixture of iron oxide and carbon. The model takes into account the reaction kinetics of both the iron oxide reduction and carbon oxidation. The model is validated with experimental data. Rate constants are compared with those in the literature.
The combination of existing reaction analysis techniques coupled with the model developed has shown that for the experimental conditions used here, the Boudouard reaction controls the self reduction kinetics.
