Presentation Title Slag Furnaces - Some Issues for Optimal Design and Operation
On-Site Speaker (Planned)
Abstract Scope 'Rules-of-thumb', some of which were originally intended for arc furnaces, play a significant role in the design process for slag containing furnaces. Lack of fundamental understanding of the physics driving the performance of these furnaces sometimes results in either overly conservative, or poorly performing designs. This paper will explore some key technical issues related to the correct design and optimal operation of slag furnaces. Reference will be made to both traditional and non-traditional designs to emphasise the potential room for continued development.
