Sintering iron ore

A lumped iron ore product that is used as a raw material for sintering.

Due to its higher iron content than in blast furnace iron ore, sintering iron ore is perfect for sintering prior to being used in blast furnace production.

Sintering iron ore is dried for ease of transportation and unloading at the customer’s site in the winter period.

The final dimensions and characteristics are agreed with the customer individually
