Then, a logical operation was applied between Figures 10b and, 10d, resulting in the open pores only (Figure 10e). Some critical features of the GeoPyc measurement are pointed out in this study. proposed a quantitative method for the analysis of pores, in green pellets by microCT, in which they successfully, validated a stereological method developed for Scanning, Electron Microscopy (SEM) images, applied it to microCT 2D, layers and compared the results with true 3D measurements, The choice of the best segmentation threshold for microCT, SEM data. 2.2.1. However, open pores can be mixed up with, irregularities and depressions in the surface, which typically, have a much larger radius. Regular pores were more frequent in BS than in SBS, PS, and LRS. compared and combined results obtained, samples of concrete, sandstone and limestone, to determine, the advantages and limitations of the methods. The well-known U-NET architecture was employed. As pores and cracks have essentially the same x-ray absorbance, they cannot be discriminated by a simple intensity threshold. 2. Finally, the severity is obtained through the measurement of the total length (or count) of inclusions and stringers for the thin and thick series. Initial results for real images indicate that the method compares well with manual measurements by an experimented operator, but with better sampling and much increased speed. exposure time. Materials Acid iron ore pellets with 4.6 wt.% SiO 2 manufactured by Severstal Resources in Karelia were used in the investigations. The results of the reduction tests show that higher temperatures and H2 content increase the rate and extent of reduction. At LKAB, the mercury porosimeter was replaced some years ago by the GeoPyc instrument, in which the sample volume is measured by packing in silica sand. to the formation and structure of pores in iron ore pellets, such as the amount of raw materials and temperature in the, manufacturing process.

In these conditions the total, scanning time was 17.4 h. From this set of samples, 6 were, After microCT acquisition the images were processed, MIP analysis was performed in whole pellets two by, low and high pressure ranges (up to 60000 psi), was used, to analyze meso- and macropores with diameters between, The pellets that were reserved for OM analysis were, polished as shown in Figure 3, so that the internal structure, of the pellet was exposed. The error bars show that the segmentation, threshold has a greater impact in the microCT images due, On the other hand, the preparation of the OM samples, can generate or increase pores and cracks in the samples that, are not original features of the material. of the technique were compared to the classical techniques. While commercially available laboratory scale instrumentation is available, we focus our attention on synchrotron-based systems, where we can exploit a high flux, monochromatic X-ray beam to produce high fidelity three-dimensional images. Iron ore pellet is a kind of agglomerated fines which has better tumbling index when compared with the iron ore and it can be used as a substitute for the iron ore lumps both in the BF and for DRI production. Ore characteristics also influence on the required amount of binder to produce pellets with satisfactorily quality. and 9c for intensity thresholds 125 and 145, respectively. In OM, the most common phases are easily discriminated by their reflectance 5, thus providing data on area fraction, size distribution, and pore morphology. The aim of this work is to study the influence of H2–H2O content in the gas phase on the reduction of acid iron ore pellets under simulated blast furnace conditions. Micro-CT visualized mercury inside large air bubbles within the concrete samples. New approaches such as, as many projections as the conventional Filtered Back. The authors. The smaller, The VOI captured with the 4X lens was not representative, of the pellet porosity, since just the center was imaged and, that is where porosity is normally highest. imaging and analysis of iron ore pellets under reduction. The microstructure of building materials greatly influences engineering properties like permeability, strength and durability. An image analysis (IA) routine is proposed to automate the classification of inclusions in steels. However, technique limited to a two-dimensional space, i.e. After optimization of the training parameters, the network was applied to the full image, successfully discriminating between pores and cracks. images acquired by X-ray microtomography. In this tutorial, we describe X-ray microtomography as a technique to nondestructively characterize material microstructure in three dimensions at a micron level spatial resolution. An … ISO - ISO 4700:1983 - Iron ore pellets — 类别: w Standard Test Method for Determination of Crushing . Thus, microCT may become a new standard for this analysis. was able to detect closed pores in all samples. Porosity and surface area changes were determined using a gas pycnometer and the BET method. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. Utilizando automação na captura de imagens por microscopia ótica, e rotinas de análise de imagens especialmente desenvolvidas, conseguiu-se criar procedimentos automáticos para a análise de sínter e pelotas de minério de ferro. Pore-size distribution curves ranging from 10 nm to 1 mm and total porosity results were obtained. The determination of porosity in iron ore green pellets by packing in silica sand. Bhuyan et, al. After contrast expansion. The microstructural segmentation of SHCC was performed in the framework of Deep Learning and it targeted an accurate segmentation of pores, fibers and aggregates. Thus, this article proposes the use of Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNN) to discriminate between these 2 classes of discontinuities. However, they are irrelevant to processes, other hand, open pores are those that have a channel of, communication with the outer surface of the solid, allowing, have high reducibility is that of open pores, but for it to, porosity value. Both techniques have certain limitations as well as certain advantages, but in the case of the investigated system micro-CT gives much more reliable results about porosity development over a prolonged firing time, at the selected temperature. Furthermore, it reveals, the presence of both internal and external cracks, that can, be related to thermal and mechanical stresses to which the, Thus, microCT is able to reveal a lot of previously, inaccessible information that can improve the properties and. and 11a may actually connect to the surface in 3D. The technique is non-destructive and requires, no specimen preparation. The calibration error against mercury porosimetry was improved from ± 0.6% to ± 0.2% (2σ) after introducing the changes specified in the text. The method is successful for the figures presented in the standard charts. Figures 5e and 5f compare the, area and volume imaged with the two lenses.

Right column: corresponding 3D volumes. All rights reserved. However, some residual errors are present. As reducibility and physical resistance of a material. MicroCT was also able to discriminate between open and closed, porosities, and revealed the volumetric spatial distribution of the pores, parameters that cannot be. Forsmo, SPE & Vuori, JP 2005, ' The determination of porosity in iron ore green pellets by packing in silica sand ', Powder Technology, no. By Karen Soares Augusto and Sidnei Paciornik. Iron ore pellets (Figure 1) are one of the main raw, in a process called pelletizing, which consists of two basic, to harden the pellet, which in its green state does not have, sucient physical resistance for the steelmaking, and must also have adequate mechanical strength for the, elasticity, mechanical strength and thermal conductivity, of the material. In addition, pore shape and connectivity. then proceeds to distinguish inclusions and/or stringers into the thin and thick series, according to the standard. Porosity is a very important property of iron ore green pellets. It is therefore licit to scan a vast portion of the image in search of all the pixels that really resemble the pixel one wants to denoise. The discrimination between pores and cracks is an important step in the microstructural analysis of iron ore pellets. The NAI method revealed larger differences in the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area and 0.002–0.15 μm pore volume for the studied soils. In this study, three different techniques are used to quantitatively describe the soil pore characteristics in a wide pore size range and to evaluate whether different pedogenic processes affect porosity and PSD of the soils. Importantly, oil retention measurements (qualifying the efficiency of ANFO as explosives) correlate well with the specific surface area determined by XCT. The green pellets need to be strengthened by spraying with a fast-drying lacquer before measurement… had been selected, the image processing step was performed: stage, since the microCT analysis was not performed on, Figures 15a, 15b and 15c show a comparison of porosity, to create the respective binary images composed of the solid, phase (white pixels) and the pores and background (black, The “ROI Shrink Wrap” function was applied to both, images to create a region of interest. For stringers, a specific routine was developed to measure the total length along RD for thin and thick inclusions, and automatically establishes the final stringer thickness. In the case of prolonged dwelling times, the number of pores decreased, but, on the other hand, the volume of these pores increased. 1.1 This test method describes a method for determining the crushing strength of fired iron ore pellets and direct-reduced iron. A system for continuous instrument control is needed to detect any wear on the measuring tools that might lead to erroneous measurement results. MicroCT is an important choice for porosity, analysis of such pellets, and it can also be used to control, between the techniques, the typical ranges of porosity values, advantages of microCT, it may be reasonable to establish a, new range that can serve as a reference for future 3D analysis, of pellets. Shatokha et al. Microscopy images reveal that H2–H2O, in the gas phase, has a positive influence on reduction, with metallic iron forming at the pellet's periphery and core at lower temperatures compared to CO–CO2–N2 reducing gas. Tests were conducted for the pellets: 1) drop test for dry pellets, 2) compressive strength and porosity for dry and heated pellets, and 3) Hardness for heated pellets 4) wear rate 5) Particle size distribution analysis. Using the same support as used, in the microCT analyzes ensured that the exposed surface, was a plane close to that obtained from reconstruction, of the CT scans, that is, perpendicular to the z-axis (see, for surface preparation; (d) cutting and polishing of the sample; (e), with a 10X lens (1.06 µm resolution) in order to obtain images, reected light is shown in Figure 4. (Figures 8b and 8d) the minima correspond. In a previous work by the authors [42], microCT was employed to volumetrically map the microstructure of two different types of SHCC. is the segmentation threshold of the images. Using different threshold values for binarization of the X-ray microtomography data and comparing the results to those obtained by SEM, we found that X-ray microtomography can be used after proper calibration against SEM data to measure the total porosity of the bubble cavities but can only provide a rough estimate of the median diameter because of the limited resolution achieved in this study. This, function allows creating a border following exactly the edge, of the object. The control of these variables can, contribute to the improvement of the quantity and shape of, the pores. Pore density is an indication of pore size and distribution. © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. Additionally, three types of pore structures have been proposed to describe the pore formation mechanism of pellets, namely original pores, pores left by shrinkage of liquid phase and pores left by induration of mineral particles. Before contrast expansion (Figures, 8a and 8c) this threshold did not correspond to a minimum, in the bottom image histograms. Consideration of X-ray microtomography to, quantitatively determine the size distribution of bubble cavities. can be used to provide a better understanding of pore size, optical microscopy (OM) and mercury intrusion porosimetry, (MIP). Figure 7(a) shows the porosity and pore density (number of pores per unit area) of different RDI pellets. Figures 15b and 15c show, an improvement for the 4µm resolution images obtained, The analyzes with the 4X lens covered an internal, cylindrical region of the pellet, so all pores on the surface of, this cylinder and all those connected to them are considered, generated they do not actually represent the open porosity of, the sample. Fiji uses modern software engineering practices to combine powerful software libraries with a broad range of scripting languages to enable rapid prototyping of image-processing algorithms. At LKAB, the mercury porosimeter was replaced some years ago by the GeoPyc instrument, in which the sample volume is measured by packing in silica sand. Introduction 1 . State-of-the-Art Report of the RILEM Technical, M, Hedlund J. Thus, it is common to select two threshold values from the, observation of the image and its histogram, and use these, values as uncertainty limits. At LKAB, the mercury porosimeter was replaced some years ago by the GeoPyc instrument, in which the sample volume is measured by packing in silica sand. The, red dotted lines show a threshold selected in a minimum of, the top image histograms. Materials. ... As we have seen in the preceding sections and as has been reported in the literature, X-ray computed tomography is a method with great potential and is being increasingly used for non-destructive materials evaluation, in particular for characterising porosity, Desenvolvimento de técnicas de microscopia digital e análise de imagens para auxiliar na caracterização de minério de ferro e das pelotas. The method, In the case of lightweight aggregate (LWA), porosity can be achieved by means of a high temperature foaming process.

The purpose of this study on concrete and natural building stones was to compare and to combine data obtained by X-ray computed micro-tomography (micro-CT), water absorption under vacuum and mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP). The usual image processing tools cannot automatically discriminate between these two types of features, especially in 3D images obtained. More specifically, the Tumbler, Abrasion, and Shatter Indices of the ore were d… In this study, we present how X-ray computed tomography (XCT), and the associated advanced data processing workflow, can be used to fully characterise the structure and morphology of AN prills. work and for the OM and MIP analyzes, and CNPq, CAPES. correspond to the actual surface of the pellet. (a, b) 0.4X (8 µm); (c, d) 4X (4 µm); (e, f) comparison between 4X and 0.4X areas and volumes. However, the resolution can be optimized to detect the main peak of the pore size distribution, close to 10 µm. Comparison of porosities: microCT x MIP: (a) 0.4X-8µm; method are a promising alternative that will, Pore Structure of cement-based materials -. The methodology in question should be, able to study separately open and closed porosity, which, not distinguished by the traditional techniques. Optical microscope image mosaic covering the entire cross section of a pellet. Then, a custom-, with the maximum cross-correlation in relation to the MO, image, and then a ne manual rotation was carried out so. Porosity Characterization of Iron Ore Pellets by X-Ray Microtomography . The pellets were dried at Finally, OM analyzes were only made for the set of pellets from, corresponding to the OM images for the samples of the 2nd, According to the MIP results the mean pore diameter, is between 8-11 µm. obtained from the other techniques. Subsequently. However, as mentioned in the Materials and Methods, section, the drawback is that acquisition time was increased, 3D volumes. The detailed characterization of soil pore structure in a wide pore size range is important for understanding the soil processes. Applying this function to Figure 10a, creates the image shown in Figure 10d, in which only dark. The pore shape measured by SR-mCT has an obvious difference in pore system for different soils. Departamento de Engenharia Química e de Materiais - DEQM, Pontifícia Universidade Católica do, Porosity Characterization of Iron Ore Pellets by X-Ray Microtomography, Sample preparation for OM: (a) mounted in resin; (b), Optical microscope image mosaic covering the entire. The fracture processes were monitored at different loading stages and Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) was employed to spatially map the strains and cracks in the specimens loaded in compression. This required, a large increase in the sample-detector distance, leading, to much lower SNR, what implied in an increase of the. The percent contribution order was shown as hydrated lime (55.10%)> moisture (29.12%)> concentrate (14.36%). The results indicate that increasing the reduction temperatures and H2 content results in greater porosity and a larger surface area. Pellets have good reducibility since they have high porosity (25-30%). (2016). ando a técnica de EBSD. There are several techniques for characterizing porosity, of pore sizes. The mixture of ammonium nitrate (AN) prills and fuel oil (FO), usually referred to as ANFO, is extensively used in the mining industry as a bulk explosive. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. used, in which only pores up to 329 µm were evaluated. Purpose The four different types of soils: black soil (BS, Udic Agriboroll), Shajiang black soil (SBS, Aquic Pelludert), paddy soil (PS, Aeric Endoaqualf), and latosolic red soil (LRS, Typic Kandiudults) were selected to represent the most important soil types in China. equal to or lower than the preheating temp. The GeoPyc instrument is easy to use and the problematic handling of mercury is avoided. In this study, tests were carried out on Muko iron ore from Uganda to analyse its suitability to meet the feed requirements of today's dominant iron production methods. Finally, to, between the total pore and open pore images, and the result, Analogously, the same procedure was done for the 4X, Open and closed pores can be rendered in 3D as shown, in Figure 12, in which open and closed pores are shown in. Several post-processing steps were necessary, which, in the case of the present work, aimed at discriminating, surface of the object - connected pores necessarily touch, this surface. But the most similar pixels to a given pixel have no reason to be close at all. Porosity is a very important property of iron ore green pellets. As expected, due to the limited spatial resolution of, the technique, the values measured from microCT images, resolution improved, either through the use of lenses or, optimized source-sample-detector geometry, these values, in an increase of acquisition time, which is also an important, However, microCT showed some relevant advantages that, can be explored. The discrimination between pores and cracks is an important step in the microstructural analysis of iron ore pellets. 2.4 Preparation of Iron Ore Pellets The pellets ( size: 15 mm dia. Fiji is a distribution of the popular open-source software ImageJ focused on biological-image analysis. BibTex; Full citation; Publisher: FapUNIFESP (SciELO) Year: 2018. The combination of NAI, MIP, and SR-mCT techniques can quantify the porosity and PSD of soils over a wide range of pores. used three dierent techniques (Nitrogen adsorption/, desorption, MIP and Syncthroton-radiation based microCT), to quantitatively describe the pore characteristics (within a, used and they were able to distinguish characteristics such. eriais envolve a quantificação de frações das fases presentes, tais como fração e distribuição de tamanhos, e de sua distribuição espacial. As expected, the porosity values obtained, from microCT were much lower than those from MIP and OM, due to the lower spatial resolution of, the proposed technique. However, some residual errors are present. The trained network was then applied to the images of different pellets with good results. One of the major performance predictors of ANFO mixtures is the fuel oil retention, which is itself governed by the complex pore structure of the AN prills. The tests were conducted under isothermal conditions. Both micro-CT and MIP were compared and their respective advantages and disadvantages discussed. There are many factors that may be related. In this step the function "ROI Shrink Wrap", was applied to the segmented image of each 2D layer. Even, taking into account the time spent in MIP experiments and, specimen preparation for OM, microCT with acceptable, resolution is still much slower. They developed an image analysis methodology, to obtain only the volume of open pores and compared the. Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy Review: Vol. The rationale here was to image as much of the, pellet volume as possible, but with a resolution similar to, the VOI images obtained with the 4X lens. Thus, the function to eliminate internal pores, that leads to Figures, Equations 1 and 2 show the expressions for volume, The results of the 1st and 2nd stages of the MIP analyzes, Based on the curves in Figure 13, the mean pore diameter, stage samples and 7-9 µm for the second stage samples. The network was trained by manually outlining representative objects of the 2 classes in a few layers of the 3D image. In: 3D X-Ray Microtomography for Studies in the Field of Iron, using nitrogen adsorption, mercury intrusion porosimetry, and, synchrotron-radiation-based X-ray computed microtomography, and microstructure characterization of building stones and, Pietzsch T, et al. Moreover, OM samples … The results show that there is a measurement error in the result of the traditional method, the mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) cannot detect closed pores, and the result of scanning electron microscope (SEM) method is more comprehensive. This, result led to the choice of image resolution in the microCT, As mentioned above in Section 2.4, the samples for, OM were prepared to reveal a surface approximately, orthogonal to the microCT rotation (z) axis, so that the, OM image could be compared to one of the horizontal, the microCT 3D image the layer corresponding to the OM, image. Scitation is the online home of leading journals and conference proceedings from AIP Publishing and AIP Member Societies. The network was trained by manually outlining representative objects of the 2 classes in a few layers of the 3D image. The masses of individual pellets are also obtained by weigh- ing on a balance. Although the values given by MIP, were closer, the region analyzed may not be representative, due to the small volume of the sample and because this, volume corresponds to the center of the pellet, which is, The microCT porosity values for the 0.4X-4µm images, were still much lower than those of the MIP technique. studied the porosity of iron ore sinters, compositions. Based on the charts from ASTM E-45, an algorithm discriminates types A, B, C, and D, after automatically building stringers aligned along the rolling direction (RD) for types B and C. Mathematical morphology operations were used to build the stringers from individual aligned inclusions. The DVC analysis highlighted the effect of loading conditions, specimen geometry and material heterogeneity at the mesolevel on the strain distribution and fracture localization. The PSD from LRS and SBS exhibited a single, sharply defined peak at a pore diameter from 0.02 to 0.04 and 0.01 to 0.06 μm, respectively. It was, found that 1600 projections were a lower limit to still allow, good discrimination of pores. they may be rotated and slightly inclined to each other. The comparison between the microCT and OM porosity, The results of porosity by microCT were lower than, by OM, again due to the poorer resolution of the microCT, technique. This, is clear from Figure 15a in which both the open and closed, porosity values obtained with the 0.4X lens were very low, compared to the MIP technique. In the present investigation an attempt has been made to study the swelling behaviour of iron oxide pellets made from chemically pure iron oxide and natural ore from Bailadila Mines. relevant data, allowing the evaluation of the soil structure, Cnudde et al.
