## Chapter 8 BLAST DESIGN - NPS

Delay patterns, and varying the hole array to fit natural excavation topography, allow for moreefficient use of the explosive energy in the blast. Benches may be designed and carried forth with morethan one face so that simple blasting patterns can be used to remove the rock. In the illustration thatfollows (Figure 8-4) shows a typical bench cut with two free faces and fired with one delay per row.

## Blast furnace process - tec-science

2018-06-21  The unmelted iron ores still contain non-reduced iron oxides. An unfavourable accumulation of ores at the contact points can also make gas flow difficult and thus leave non-reduced iron ore behind. At the latest, however, when the melting process occurs in the deeper and hotter zones of the blast furnace, iron ores can be almost completely reduced.
