Abstract

In modern metallurgical processes, the mixing of a metal bath is a basic operation that allows achieving a state of close chemical and thermal homogenization of liquid steel after the insertion of the alloy addition. Mixing also increases the efficiency of removing non-metallic inclusions. Research into metal bath mixing processes contributes to the optimization of steelmaking processes.The article presents the calculations made at the conditions prevailing in a ladle furnace with a volume of 145 Mg liquid steel. The effect of mixing power of argon on chemical homogenization bath was determined. The mixing power values for the argon flow rates in the ladle QAr = 100-500 [dm3/min] were calculated.
