Simulation of Inclusions Removal Influenced by Snorkel and Blowing Parameters in RH Refining
In this paper the influence of snorkel length and snorkel inner diameter and lifting gas flow rate on inclusion removal rate are discussed. It is found that inclusion removal rate varies greatly with snorkel length and snorkel inner diameter. Prolonging the snorkel length is benefited for inclusions removal in RH and inclusion remove time is enhanced, but inclusion remove rate is decreased when snorkel inner diameter is reduced. There is a best lifting gas flow rate for inclusion removal.
