EAF Steelmaking

Carmeuse high quality lime and dolime are very important components of fluxes used in the EAF. Lime and dolime are providing CaO and MgO and modifying slag basicity and slag viscosity to purify the steel, removing phosphorous and silica and monitoring sulphur while improving metallic yield. Carmeuse dolime or magnesian lime addition is especially required to protect and enhance refractory lifetime and allows to promote a good foaming throughout the heat cycle. Lime injection is recommended to further improve the overall efficiency and sustainability of the process and Carmeuse is recognized as an industry expert in this area.
