Key Considerations

Several needs should be taken into consideration when selecting the right product for your BOF steelmaking needs:

  • Slag Chemistry
  • Phosphorus levels
  • Oxidation requirements

Several needs should be taken into consideration when selecting the right product for your EAF steelmaking needs:

  • Slag Chemistry
  • Nitrogen and hydrogen levels in the foamy slag
  • Oxidation requirements

Several needs should be taken into consideration when selecting the right product for your foundry operating with an EAF needs:

  • Slag chemistry
  • Nitrogen and hydrogen levels in the foamy slag
  • Oxidation requirements

Several needs should be taken into consideration when selecting the right product for your stainless steel needs:

  • Slag chemistry
  • De-oxidation and desulfurization practices in the secondary metallurgy treatments 
     

Your Benefits

Why High Calcium Quicklime from Carmeuse for Your BOF Steelmaking Needs?

  • Optimizes chemistry of the slag
  • Removes impurities such as sulfur, phosphorus and oxides
  • Maintains viscosity of the slag to increase heat yields

Why High Calcium Quicklime from Carmeuse for Your EAF Steelmaking Needs?

  • Optimizes chemistry of the slag
  • Removes impurities such as sulfur and oxides 
  • Supports foaminess through-out the heat
  • Prevents nitrogen and hydrogen pick-up
  • Reduces energy costs by insulating the bath
  • Prevents electrodes from damaging the refractory
  • Maintains viscosity of the slag to increase heat yields
