Abstract Scope Better understanding of removal of non-metallic inclusions is important in the steelmaking process to control the cleanliness of the steel. In this study, the dissolution rate of Al2O3, CaO.2Al2O3 and Al2TiO5 inclusions in a liquid CaO–SiO2–Al2O3 slag were measured using confocal scanning laser microscope (CSLM) in a temperature range from 1430 to 1600C. The dissolution rate of inclusions is expressed as a function of the rate of decrease of the thickness of solid particles with time. It is found that Al2O3 inclusions have a slower dissolution rate than that of CaO.2Al2O3, and that Al2TiO5 inclusions at 1550-1600C. An increase in temperature increase the dissolution rate and change the dissolution mechanism for CaO.2Al2O3 and Al2TiO5 inclusions. In this paper, the evidence for and against the theory on dissolution mechanisms will be critically examined and repercussions of the theory to steel refining processes will be discussed.
