This is the first edition of this course, born from the demand of the sector, collected from the assistants to the course of "Hot Rolling of Long Products" among others, to offer training and new points of view to professionals in the sector. In these four years, we see that this type of course interests senior professionals as well as junior or recent professionals in the sector, since they find the opportunity to acquire new points of view on technical content, as well as new methods and ideas or discuss on how to analyze their particular case.
The course is structured in five parts,
It is a general presentation of the processes of Foundry and Laddle Refining, as well as the chemistry of specific processes, and refractory.
BOS / BOF
Description of the manufacturing process of oxygen-based steelmaking, desulfurization, blowing, additions, decarburization, load balancing, etc..
This part focuses especially on everything that influences the quality of the resulting product, cleaning, inclusions, surface quality, cracks, internal quality, solidification, segregations, etc.
It will show how electric energy is supplied and these facilities will be described. It will explain how EAF furnaces are designed, and how they are used, as well as the fusion process is planned and steps for this first steel in this route.
Laddle Refining or Secondary Metallurgy
The processes of this step will be described, such as deoxidation and alloying, slag control, homogenization, temperatures, degasification, etc.
Five workshops will be developed:
- BOS Charge Balance Model
- Characterization of Slab Quality
- Steel University Simulations: Choice of BOS and/or Continuous Casting
- EAF Scrap Types and Least Cost Mix
- Steel University Simulations: Choice of EAF and / or Ladle Steelmaking
