The influence of different pre-oxidation temperature and pre-oxidation degree on the reduction and fluidization behaviors of magnetite-based iron ore was investigated in a hydrogen-induced fluidized bed. The raw magnetite-based iron ore was pre-oxidized at 800 and 1000 °C for a certain time to reach a partly oxidation and deeply oxidation state. The structure and morphology of the reduced particles were analyzed via optical microscope and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The reaction kinetic mechanism was determined based on the double-logarithm analysis. The results indicate that the materials with higher oxidation temperature and wider particle size range showed better fluidization behaviors. While lower oxidation temperature was more beneficial for the reduction rate, especially in the later reduction stage. The pre-oxidation degree shows no obvious influence on the fluidization and reduction behaviors. The reduction progress can be divided into three stages. The reduction mechanism was discussed combing the surface morphology and phase structure.
