Granulation is necessary before iron ore sintering. The optimum granulation moisture added to the mixture of iron ores, fuel and coke for obtaining suitable size distribution of the granules after tumbled in a drum is of vital importance for the sintering. In order to investigate the optimum moisture content, the moisture capacity of the iron ore, which means the maximum water content held in iron ores of unit
