Study of Current Steelmaking Practices to Evaluate the Viability of Continuous Steelmaking
The viability of continuous steelmaking under current steelmaking practices is discussed. There are several differences between the steelmaking practices in a conventional meltshop and the expected practices for continuous steelmaking meltshop. The batch steelmaking practices and the continuous steelmaking differ in their temperature profiles during the processing. The continuous process is now preferred by metallurgical industry owing to its benefits including increased utilization of equipments, improved metallurgical results and reduced material and energy consumption.
