Steel producers are increasingly manufacturing high and low-carbon, structural, unique alloyed, and mechanical steel qualities, all of which have high requirements for resistance, strength, and purity. Inferior quality of raw materials increases process difficulties resulting from the presence of harmful residual elements such as sulfur, phosphorous, hydrogen, and non-metallic inclusion of SiO2 and Al2O3.
SLAG CONDITIONERS & FLUXES
TAILORED TO YOUR OPERATION
OPTA’s slag conditioners are used to adjust slag chemistry and/or viscosity, facilitating efficient sulfur removal and inclusion engineering. In addition, slag conditioners enhance alloy recovery and protect melt shop refractories. Slag insulators are also used to inhibit temperature loss in the iron and steelmaking process.
By combining physical slag analysis and our innovative simulation capabilities, our products can be tailored to meet specific operational needs.
Opta’s technical team can develop a custom product for your steelmaking needs.
Opta can treat and even remove those impurities using secondary metallurgy, cored wires, and slag conditioners. Application of those products comprises precise technical diagnosis using state-of-the-art computer modeling, empirical data from in-situational use, and follow-up by highly qualified technicians. Opta ensures optimum results and customer satisfaction.
