Aspects of Smelting Pig Iron in Electric Reduction Furnaces

High production rate and good stability demand the optimization of all phases of electric pig iron smelting. This is important with respect to slag chemistry, which to a large extent regulates the process temperature in electric smelting. Controlled basicity and slag volume. and a satisfactory screen analysis of the reduction material and sinter, are of the utmost importance for smooth furnace operation. Large variations in slag volume and in B/ A and C/Fe ratio will have an influence on the furnace resistance and thus t he specific energy development in the furnace, which lead to variable reduction of SiO.. The result will be variable hot -metal quality and unstable furnace operation
