The key to higher quality steels and lowering costs with measuring technologies in modern steel making
Why is slag management so important in steel manufacturing?
It is well-known that slag has many important functions.
Besides being a barrier for atmospheric gases and reducing thermal losses slag functions as sink for oxides, inclusions and impurities and protects the liquid steel from atmospheric air reoxidation.
Especially for high-quality steel manufacturers, they need to control the slag process to be able to increase steel cleanliness, prevent nozzle clogging during continuous casting, reach exact steel grades, increase desulfurization efficiency, optimize production efficiency and safety, and finally control costs.
