A mathematical model which describes heat and mass transfer in the packed bed of a traveling grate pelletizing machine has been written. This mathematical model enables the temperature profiles which develop in the packed bed of a traveling grate pelletizing machine while magnetite oxidation occurs to be simulated. The model was written by formulating differential heat and mass balances for a thin slice of the bed which travels through the pelletizing furnace.
