Calcium aluminate /synthetic slag
Synthetic slag consists of prepared mixture of several individual oxides which is used during secondary steelmaking to assist the steel treatment in the ladle from the viewpoint of effective refinement. Synthetic slag practice is normally used to obtain clean steels and also for the desulphurization of the liquid steel.
Calcium Aluminate Slag provides benefits:
Savings on the elimination or reduced consumption of dolomitic lime, fluorspar, aluminum and calcium carbide.
Ladle refractory protection.
Energy savings at ladle furnaces.
Consistent slag chemistry.
Faster steel refining times.
Sulpher and inclusion removal in steel.
Greater casting yields through improved castability.
Application for aluminum and silicon-killed grades.
