Comprehensive Analysis of High Nitrogen Steel Refining Factors with High-Pressure and Bottom-Blowing Nitrogen
The experimental results on high nitrogen steels refining with high-pressure and bottom-blowing nitrogen were analyzed by the theories of thermodynamics and kinetics in high nitrogen steels smelting. It was shown that nitrogen content in steel increases with the increase of the following factors, that is, pressure, alloying elements (Cr and Mn), bottom-blowing time and bottom-blowing flow. While the nitrogen content in steel decreases with the temperature increase, but it is not obvious. The nitrogen content in steel can also increase with the surface active elements (O and S) decreasing.
