Slopping of Slag in Basic Oxygen Furnace

Slopping of Slag in Basic Oxygen Furnace Steelmaking in basic oxygen furnace (BOF) is a batch process in which steel is made from liquid iron. The concentration of elements such as carbon (C), manganese (Mn), and phosphorous (P) have an impact on the steel quality. For the steel to be cast, it needs to be …
