Iron and steel industry has widely used briquetting technology, such as coal briquetting, coking briquetting and sponge iron briquetting which is the most well-known product for easy and safe transportation of sponge iron worldwide.
With increasing the number of Electric Arc Furnace in Asia and other countries as well as decreasing the possibility of producing high-quality iron scrap with the density of 1 MT/m3, using DRI and HBI charging has been considered remarkably as the best solution for producing iron.
Using a continuous Hot Briquetted Iron charge in the furnace results in reducing the number of charging iron scrap baskets to the furnace. Obviously, decreasing the number of baskets will decrease the time of preparation, which will also increase productivity and production.
Owing to the low production costs, the potential for immediate development and having large-scale development projects, Middle Eastern HBI suppliers have the ability to compete in the North East and Southeast Asia.
Although the capacity of HBI production in the Middle East and North Africa is increasing, the parallel growth of Electric Arc steelmaking capacity will increase the demand for metallic iron compared to its supply. Therefore, the Middle East may become a scrap metal importer to offset its deficit!
We in Gulf Sea Petroleum, as the experienced exporter of high-quality HBI, have been supplying HBI to different countries satisfactorily. With relying on the knowledge of our experienced team, we offer full customer support with our product and ensure that our customers’ orders, delivery schedules, and shipment requirements are met.
