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
