Ladle Metallurgy Furnace (LMF) are used to refine molten steel to special grades while remaining in the ladle. Ladle metallurgy is a method in which crude molten steel from a steelmaking furnace is poured into a ladle for further refining. It‘s’ used to remove impurities such as hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon and sulfur in molten steel, […]
Electric arc furnace is often compared with ladle furnace. What is the difference between an electric arc furnace and a ladle refining furnace?
Ladle refining furnace has outstanding design features: artificial slag submerged in a “long arc” under atmospheric pressure, temperature measurement, sampling, microalloying, deoxidation, desulfurization, purification, etc. It ensures the improvement of steelmaking quality and productivity. It has precise temperature adjustment for continuous casting and steel composition (Metallurgical fine adjustment).
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.
