Electric arc furnace is often compared with ladle furnace. What is the difference between an electric arc furnace and a ladle refining furnace?
The ladle refining furnaces refer to the machinery and equipment that takes into account the heating and refining functions of the converter.
It is a key metallurgical machine used for refining molten steel melted in primary furnaces (intermediate frequency furnaces, blast furnaces, and steelmaking furnaces), and can adjust the temperature of molten steel, cache the processing technology, and achieve steel rolling and rolling mills.
Ladle refining furnace refers to the equipment with the function of heating and refining of steel-making furnace. It is important metallurgical equipment used to refine the molten steel melted in the primary smelting furnace (electric arc furnace, open-hearth furnace, and converter), adjust the molten steel temperature, and buffer the process, so as to meet the requirements of continuous casting and continuous rolling. A ladle furnace is one of the main pieces of equipment for refining outside the furnace.
