Abstract

The research work is a part of a larger study on identifying distribution of microparticles in the model liquid, which flows through a model of the tundish. Model (physical) testing is aimed at qualitative (based on visualization of the process) and quantitative assessments (performed by using the Abakus® Mobil Fluid laser microparticle counter).The article presents methodology on preparing microparticles for research tests and research test findings performed by using a laser microparticle counter. These tests were aimed at developing correct methodology for collecting samples in the tundish model, as well as, for their analysis by using a measuring instrument – a laser particle counter.

Keywords: Tundish, non-metallic inclusions, distribution, physical modelling
