“Numerical Study and Validation of Hot Metal Desulfurization using Calcium Carbide in the Ladle” presented at IMECE
Xipeng Guo, a CIVS Ph.D. student presented his research paper on November 3rd, 2022, at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE). The purpose of the paper entitled “Numerical Study and Validation of Hot Metal Desulfurization using Calcium Carbide in the Ladle” was to deliver the most recent CFD model and results on hot metal desulfurization. This is in relation to a ladle furnace project under a Steel Manufacturing Simulation & Visualization Consortium member partnership.
“The process of hot metal desulfurization utilizing lance injection in the transfer ladle is widely used in the industry. The desulfurization process is mainly controlled by injected desulfurization reagents with carrier gas. Commonly used desulfurization reagents include lime, calcium carbide, and magnesium powder.”
