Content, chemical-mineralogical composition, and dimensions of non-metal inclusions depend upon a number of the following priority factors: thermodynamic activity of used deoxidizers and their composition, temperature-time conditions of deoxidation and ladle treatment of the metal, methods of steel casting, limitation of secondary oxidation, quality of bottom-pouring refractories (high heat resistance and low erosion), weight of the ingots (duration of the metal crystallization), and geometrical dimensions of sectioned rolled stock, which effects deformability of inclusions.
The business operates aluminum smelting and deoxidizer manufacturing facilities in Painesville, Ohio and generates annual revenue of approximately US $45 million.
It should be noted that according to valid normative-technical documentation addition of deoxidizers and modifiers without limitation of their kinds and residual contents is allowed in melting of the 20GL steel for transport machine building.
In addition to carbon, active deoxidizers are calcium and aluminium, application of which in ESR allows not just deoxidizing the metal, but enables removal of other harmful impurities (sulfur, phosphorus, etc.
Dependences of silicon and manganese melting loss upon content of carbon at the furnace outlet (Figure 2, a) and changes of carbon content in the ladle-furnace (Figure 2, b) showed that the fuller was decarbonization of metal in the ladle-furnace, the lower was melting loss of deoxidizers.
Charges consist of 40-60% foundry returns with the balance made up of low carbon iron or 1010 steel, ferroalloys and deoxidizers.
Unlike other deoxidizers such as phosphorus copper, lithium copper allows the foundry to make pure copper castings with close to 100% conductivity (as opposed to the 30% or less conductivity that can result when using other deoxidizers).
Deoxidizers vary in their ability to reduce FeO, although no deoxidizer is able to reduce all FeO present in molten steel.
Figure 5 shows the various common deoxidizers and their effect on the sulfide shape.
