Desulphurization of hot metal is an important step in the steel production process. Sulphur in steel, negatively influences both mechanical and corrosion properties of the steel and causes of hot shortness. A major source of sulphur in the hot metal is from the coal used in the blast furnace. As the usage of lower grade coal is being more common, more sulphur is introduced into the hot metal. Thus, there is an increased need for efficient Desulphurization of hot metal. Thus the module explains the importance of Desulphurization in achieving the best quality of steel.
With the help of this E-Learning module you will learn the Process and steps evolved in Steel Making Process.
Need of Desulphurisation in the process of Steel Making and complete process flow of Desulphurisation Step by Step.
