    OverviewOre smeltingAncient usesModern usesBasic slagSee alsoFurther reading

    In nature, iron, copper, lead, nickel and other metals are found in impure states called ores, often oxidized and mixed in with silicates of other metals. During smelting, when the ore is exposed to high temperatures, these impurities are separated from the molten metal and can be removed. Slag is the collection of compounds that are removed. In many smelting processes, oxides are introduced to control the slag chemistry, assisting in the removal of impurities and protecting the furnace refractorylining from excessiget price

    Steelmaking Slag an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Apr 04, 2012 In steelmaking, slag–metal mixing is a very common phenomenon and it occurs due to the shear at the slag–metal interface caused by excessive liquid steel flow. 37 This mixing leads to emulsification of steel in slag, which increases the total interfacial area and consequently the rate of slag–metal reactions.get price
