Title

Alloy Dissolution in Argon Stirred Steel

Abstract

This paper investigates the effects of argon flow rate, alloy size, and melt temperature on alloy dissolution and mixing rates in a fortyfive kilogram laboratory ladle fitted with a porous plug. The dissolution behavior of ferroniobium, nickel, and low-carbon ferromanganese, as well as the mixing characteristics of liquid tin, are evaluated and discussed to understand the dissolution and mixing mechanisms.
