Abstract:
The importance of slag has been very well understood by the steelmaking industry to cut the cost of producing quality steel. In a general sense, the primary purpose of the slag is to absorb metallic impurities, as well as cover the arc produced by electrodes to protect the refractory from arc flare; protect the metal from oxidation; control the steel oxygen levels and chemistry of the steel; avoid oxygen and nitrogen pickup; reduce temperature loss; and help in dephosphorization and desulfurization.
