Usually limonitic and goethite ore are associated with higher alumina and LOI. The conventional sintering process is one of the well established processes for high quality hematite ore. It does not fully respond to the low grade iron ore associated with goethite and limonite. This has led to deterioration in sinter properties and productivity.
The process basically consists of two reactors a reduction shaft and a melter/gasifier reactor. Lump iron ore, sinter, and/or pellets are reduced by first being metallized in a reduction shaft by off-gases coming from the melter/gasifier reactor. The product consists of approximately 90% reduced iron.

consists of a cellular mass of ore bonded in a slag matrix. The sinter mix, besides the ore fines, usually contains other materials like flue dust, return fines, limestone and/or dolomite etc., in order to control the properties of the product as well as to utilize industrial waste. Return sinter fines having lower fusion temperature than the raw mix serve as seeds for initiation of the sintering process.

Iron ore sintering is a type of powder metallurgy used to pre-treat iron before using it in manufacturing applications. Sintering involves heating iron powder to partially, but not completely, melt the iron particles. The exact process used and additional elements involved vary, with some methods using gas or electricity in addition to heat.
