Abstract

Muestra los ensayos de  reduciblidad  realizados en un horno
tipo Linder a un mineral de hierro del municipio de Ubalá
(departamento de Cundinamarca, Colombia), usando como
reductor un char. Se  indican las características del mineral
de  hierro  de Ubalá, de  los  carbones  empleados para  la
producción del char y de la caliza, así como los ensayos de
reducibilidad. Para la caracterización de  las materias primas
y del char, como producto  final, se aplicaron normas ASTM.
En  la producción de  los char se utilizaron  los hornos de
coquización  tipo Cerchar  y  tipo  colmena  de  la Uptc  en
Samacá  (Boyacá). Los ensayos de reducibilidad se hicieron
bajo  los mismos parámetros de operación utilizados con
carbón como reductor, y los resultados obtenidos dejan ver
que el mineral de hierro de Ubalá es reducible en menor
porcentaje con char. Sin embargo, por  los grandes beneficios
para el medioambiente que se obtienen trabajando con el
char, no se descarta  la posibilidad de utilizarlo como posible
sustituto del carbón en el proceso de reducción directa.
