Abstract: The liquid steel is made in a vessel known as converter. There is a wall of refractory lining inside the converter to protect it from heavy heat which is produced at the time of making steel. Due to heavy heat and chemical erosion these refractory lining also get damaged and required to be change time to time which hampers production. To protect the lining of the converter a protective coating of the slag material is given over the converter lining which is popularly known as slag splashing. The objective of the present study is to carry out water modeling study of slag splashing process in reduced scale down model of actual converter. The study involves carrying out parametric study of various designs and operating parameters of slag splashing process.
Keywords: steelmaking, slag splashing, scale down model, lance height etc.
