These work in conjunction with melter’s eyeballs, which remain the dominant control device. This seemingly simple practice has increased lining life beyond all expectations, from a few thousand to over 20, heats per campaign. Once the heat is ready for tapping and the preheated ladle is positioned in the ladle car under the furnace, the vessel is tilted towards the tapping aisle, oxiteno steel emerges from the taphole in the upper “cone” section of the vessel.

The Europeans quickly took to the “Thomas Process” because of their very high-phosphorus hot metal, and as a bonus, granulated the phosphorus-rich molten slag in water to create a fertilizer.

The metalloids and Mn are oxidized out of the hot metal, the scrap is often coated with Zn which volatilizes, and iron units are lost to the slag, fume, and ed.

The new process was officially dubbed the “LD Process” and because of its high productivity was seen bazico as a viable, low capital process by which the war torn countries of Europe could rebuild their steel industries.

The post combustion of carbon monoxide as it exits the vessel also transmits heat back to the bath.

Cans return to the market very quickly but autos have an average life of 12 years. However, elsewhere its use is growing. Fuentes, Hervey Zamora G. Slag in the ladle results in phosphorus reversion, retarded desulfurization, and possibly “dirty steel”. It oxidizes the carbon and silicon contained in the hot metal liberating great quantities of heat which melts the scrap.

Scrap also comes in many sizes, varying chemical analyses and a variety of prices.

The nearby Dolomite Mountains also provided an ideal source of material for basic refractories. There exist several variations on the BOS process: The inability of the Bessemer process to melt significant quantities of scrap became an economic handicap as steel scrap accumulated. The future of the BOS depends on the availability of hot metal, which in turn depends on the cost and availability of coke. Because lime in steel slag absorbs moisture and expands on weathering, its use as an aggregate material is limited, but other commercial uses are being developed to minimize the amount that must be disposed.


Very large pieces of scrap can be difficult to melt and may damage the vessel when charged.

Blowing continues for a predetermined time based on the metallic charge chemistry and the melt specification. After tapping steel into the ladle, and turning the vessel upside down and tapping the remaining slag into the “slag pot”, the vessel is returned to the upright position.

The result has been that melt shop process and finishing mill quality and yields improved several percent, such that the quantity of raw steel required per ton of product decreased significantly.

Supreme Court supported lower court decisions that considered the patent to be invalid. Nevertheless, the appeal of lower energy, labor, and refractory costs for the LD process could not be denied and although oxygen usage in the open hearth delayed the transition to the new process in the U. The sulfur containing compounds report to the slag; however, unless the sulfur-rich slag is skimmed before the hot metal is poured into the BOF, the sulfur actually charged will be well above the level expected from the metal analysis.

About half of the systems are open combustion designs where excess air is induced at the mouth of the hood to completely burn the carbon monoxide.

This rate of production made the process compatible with the continuous casting of slabs, which in turn had an enormous beneficial impact on yields from crude steel to shipped product, and on downstream flat-rolled quality. However, it is clear that Kelly’s “air boiling” process was conducted at such low blowing rates that the heat generation barely offset the heat losses.

Hard burned material just sits there. As a consequence, ladle sizes remained unchanged in the renovated open hearth shops and ingot pouring aisles were built in the new shops. Flat rolled scrap is generally of good quality and it’s impact on the chemistry of BOF operations can almost be ignored.

The original bricks were tar bonded, where the MgO grains were coated with tar and pressed warm represented a great step forward for the BOS process. This saturates the slag with MgO, thus reducing chemical erosion of the MgO vessel lining. William Kelly was awarded the original U. The high concentrations of FeO formed late in the blow, however, will oxidize the carbon in the brick.


Development now moved to neighboring Austria where developers wanted to produce low nitrogen, flat-rolled sheet, but a shortage of scrap precluded open hearth operations. There were also acrimonious legal actions over patent rights to the process and the supersonic lance design, which was now multihole rather than single hole. Today, the refractory industry is undergoing major structural changes.

The magnesia lime type refractories used in lining oxygen steelmaking vessels are selected mainly for their compatibility with the highly basic finishing slags required to remove and retain phosphorus in solution. Some scrap may contain oil or surface oxidation.

This is close to the average heat size for the 50 BOFs which were operable in the U. It is transported to the BOF shop either in torpedo cars or ladles.

Although it is possible to operate BOFs with reduced hot metal charges, i. Some dimensions of a typical ton BOF vessel in the U. After the war, the Germans were denied the right to manufacture tonnage oxygen, but oxygen plants were shipped to other countries. Many steel mills have agreements with manufacturers to buy their prompt scrap. The taphole is generally plugged with material that prevents slag entering the ladle as the vessel turns down.

This information permits an “in course” correction during the final two minutes and better turn-down performance. A lump of soft burned lime dissolves quickly in a cup of water liberating heat.

Obsolete scrap may contain a variety of other objects which bov be hazardous or explosive. These were eroded to form a basic slag that absorbed phosphorus and sulfur, although the amounts remained high by modern standards. BOS process replaced open hearth steelmaking. Although all refractory materials are oxigen by FeO, MgO forms a solid solution with FeO, meaning they coexist as solids within a certain temperature range. To minimize slag carryover into the ladle at the end of tapping, various “slag stoppers” have been designed.

Limestone, scrap, and sponge iron are all potential coolants that can be added to a heat that has been overblown and is excessively hot.
