This report completes a two-year collaborative effort between Minntac, NRRI Coleraine
Minerals Laboratory and UMD Chemical Engineering, aimed at modeling the Minntac Line 6 GrateKiln
induration system. The goals of this research were twofold:
1. Develop numerical models of existing taconite induration operations.
2. Demonstrate application of these models for process analysis leading to improved
process efficiency defined by increased productivity and reduced fuel costs.
