Ladle furnace (LF) is widely used in the secondary steelmaking process in particular for the de-sulfurization, alloying and reheating of liquid steel prior to casting process. Effective Equilibrium Reaction Zone (EERZ) model using the FactSage macro processing code was applied to develop a kinetic LF process model. The slag/metal interaction, flux addition to slag, and various metallic additions to steel and arcing in LF process were taken into account to describe the variations of chemistry and temperature of steel and slag. The LF operation data for several steel grades from different plants were accurately described using the present kinetic model.
