The presented paper shows the way of determination of the thermo-chemical reserve zone location in the working space of blast furnace, using data from the horizontal probe. Reserve zone is the bottom boundary of the preparatory zone, and so the area of indirect reduction of iron oxides. Occurrence of these reactions also depends on the contact time between the gas and the solid phases, so it is extremely important for the smooth operation of the blast furnace process.
