The Study of Nitrogen Absorption with Slagging in High Nitrogen Steels Smelted by High Pressure and Bottom-Blowing Nitrogen
The experiment studied the influence of slag system on nitrogen content in high nitrogen steels which refined by the method of high-pressure and bottom-blowing nitrogen under the conditions of 1.0Mpa. The results shows that nitrogen content are up to 1.0% without the over of slag, and after adding slag, nitrogen content are up to 1.39%; Alkalinity of protecting slag has little effect on the nitrogen content, however, there are very effective to increase nitrogen after using CaF2 instead of SiO2 ,and its nitrogen content are as high as 1.48%; the effect of increasing nitrogen are clear by adding no more than 0.5% pure aluminum, but when aluminum content are more than 0.5%, the nitrogen content in steel are not change significantly, meanwhile, if adding CaF2 slag system, it will be more effective increase nitrogen than only adding pure aluminum.
