HIsarna is a smelting reduction ironmaking process that is currently in the pilot plant development phase. HIsarna produces hot metal with higher sulphur, lower phosphorus and manganese, almost no silicon and titanium and a lower temperature compared to the blast furnace. Because of that, desulphurisation of the HIsarna hot metal is one of the...

At the hot metal desulphurisation (HMD) stations of Tata Steel’s BOS plant in Port Talbot (UK), KAlF4 is injected together with magnesium in order to increase the fluidity of the slag and thus to decrease the iron loss. Although KAlF4 is successfully contributing to a lower iron loss during HMD, it also has a negative effect on the...

During the magnesium-lime co-injection process for hot metal desulphurisation, graphite can precipitate as a result of carbon oversaturation. The formed graphite is known to form a layer between the slag and the hot metal. This potentially blocks the sulphides, that are formed during the desulphurisation process, to reach the slag phase thus...
