[en] In this study, a one-dimensional generic model capable of being integrated with reactor scale models is proposed for a single pellet through solving the transient diferential conservation equations. Predicted results comparison with the experimental data showed close agreement. In addition, the model was used to investigate the relevance of physical characteristics of pellet,
reacting gas composition, difusion factors, and prevailing regime. It was found that the pure magnetite pellet could achieve
a temperature rise of about 245 K at oxygen concentration of 40 vol.%, whereas the maximum temperature diference inside
the pellet was approximately 24 K. Moreover, increasing pellet size, the maximum attainable temperature reached a peak and
then leveled out. Furthermore, by decreasing the pore diameter, the pellet size with peak temperature shifted to the smaller
pellet sizes. Analyzing the numerical results also showed that for the small pellet sizes, shortening the difusion path leads
to the spreading of the reaction interface. The modeling methodology herein can be applied to any particulate processes and
is not limited to the aforementioned case.
