The objective of this research project is to investigate the potential for mercury porosimetry to measure and characterize pore
characteristics for iron ore green balls and fired pellets. Pellet porosity is significant to the
diffusion of oxygen during the oxidation and reducing gases through fired pellets and therefore
critical to both physical and metallurgical quality.
