The tank degassing process has proven its high availability and its suitability for the production of high-quality steel grades in more than 130 units with heat sizes up to 340t.

The process is characterized by slag free-tapping at the melting unit, application of ladles with a sufficient freeboard and inert gas stirring through the ladles bottom by means of porous plugs.

The application of oxygen blowing systems (VD-OB) enables oxygen blowing for forced decarburization and for chemical heating by aluminium combustion.

  • effective degassing
  • metal-slag metallurgy
  • deep desulphurization
  • low operation & maintenance cost
