The sintering pot test was used to investigate the effect of TiO2 on the sintering behavior of chromium-bearing vanadium–titanium magnetite (CVTM) sinter. The main characterization methods of X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy-energy disperse spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), and metallographic microscopy were employed. In this study, yield, tumbler index (TI), vertical sintering speed, productivity, reduction degradation index (RDI), and reduction index (RI) were tested and calculated. The yield first increases from 82.87% to 84.37% and then decreases to 83.65%, vertical sintering speed first increases from 17.00 mm·min−1 to 23.45 mm·min−1 and then decreases to 20.61 mm·min−1, and productivity first increases from 2.33 t·m−2·h−1 to 3.14 t·m−2·h−1 and then decreases to 2.69 t·m−2·h−1 with increasing TiO2 content. The TI increases from 45.81% to 52.09%, and RDI increases from 74.99% to 96.74%, while RI decreases from 67.92% to 47.15% with increasing TiO2 content. View Full-Text
