Slag Carry-Over – the Last Unknown?

Slag Carry-Over – the Last Unknown?

Slag carry-over in ladle refining operations is most likely one of the last unknowns in metals processing. No-one can for certain tell that the carry over amount is under control and does not influence on processing and product quality. We know for sure that the variation in sub-sequent processing operations due to uncontrolled slag carry-over is larger thn you would expect with very unfavorable consequences: Processing instability increases and targets are missed. Product quality suffer. This paper elaborates on the influence on processing, production, and product quality by slag carry-over in ladle refining operations. You will be surprised that something unknown and usually poorly controlled influences so strongly on your […]

LadleSlag

Ladle Deslagging Control LadleSlag technology package monitors ladle deslagging operations and ensures that excessive slag carry over is avoided. Deslag evaluates the slag content and feeds information to the operator when a sufficient deslaging has been achieved. Why LadleSlag? Are you experiencing uncontrolled sulphur increases in the BOF? Are you experiencing uncontrolled reoxidation during ladle treatment influencing on product quality? Do you feel a need to narrow down process variations and operator dependency? Do you need to decrease your metal losses during deslagging? If you associate with any of the above, LadleSlag will assist you in solving your problem. Slag carry-over The problem with slag carry over is well known in steelmaking operations, occurring […]
