Our ladle refining products are engineered for clean steelmaking practices in high- productivity steel shops. These custom designed additives quickly generate a fluid ladle slag to improve shop productivity and final product quality. The generation of a liquid ladle slag with high CaO (Calcium Oxide) and low FeO (Iron Oxide) contents increases the absorption capacity of both oxide inclusions and sulfur. This is necessary to achieve the steel product specifications required for today’s applications.
We configure the exact characteristics of the product to suit the needs of individual customers. Using a mass balance analysis, we analyze a slag sample to determine the furnace chemistry. We compare this with the slag chemistry and typical carryover slag amounts required to create a custom metallurgical treatment product for each steel grade family.
