Research on Removal of Sulfide Inclusion in Steel Surface by Molten Salt Electrolysis
Steel including sulfide inclusion was used as cathode, while high density graphite rod was used as anode. Sulfide inclusion in steel surface was removed by molten salt electrolysis in molten CaCl2 at 850 under the stationary voltage. The influences of the voltage and electrolytic time on the process of reaction were investigated. The distributions of the sulfide inclusion were investigated by SEM. The desulfurated ratio was investigated by quantitative metallographic analysis, Cyclic voltammetry was performed to characterize reactions of cathode. The results show that the voltage and the time of electrolysis were in direct proportion with desulfurated ratio. The higher voltage and the longer electrolysis time is, the greater the desulfurated ratio is.
