JSW Steel Limited is a 10.0 Mtpa integrated steel plant and 2 corex & 4 blast furnace forms the main iron making units. Sinter and pellet are the main iron bearing feed to iron making units. JSW Steel Limited operates with a 4.2x2 Mtpa pellet plant and the production rate of each pellet plant is ~500t/hr. Pellet plant utilizes 100% beneficiation plant (BP) product for pellet making. Beneficiation plant product size (pellet grade fines) is coarser (-45micron - 40 to 45%) in nature. Optimum particle size of the raw material is required to get the desired properties of the pellets. BP plant has set up two number of ball mill to get the optimum particle size for pellet making. Pelletisation studies were carried out in laboratory by varying the ball mill discharge size from 52 to 68% -45micron size to optimize the pellet grade fines size to achieve desired physical and metallurgical properties of the fired pellets. The desired physical and metallurgical properties of the pellets were obtained with the iron ore fineness 64% -45micron size due to presence of well balanced mineralogical phases.
