Dolomitic Quicklime

Our dolomitic quicklime has the proper magnesium content to balance and protect your refractories. The calcium content of dolomitic lime is used in combination with high calcium lime as a fluxing agent to achieve proper slag chemistry and physical properties. Dolomitic quicklime is critical to producing quality steel and controlling your costs.

Key Considerations

  • Proper magnesium balance protects and prevents erosion of the refractories.
  • Magnesium-saturated slag with dolomitic lime promotes and sustains foaminess in EAF.
  • Protects refractories from the radiation of the electric arc in EAF.
  • Lime handling to prevent fines generation.
  • Lime injection in EAF to further control lime activity and slag foaming.
