Research on Reducing Tapping Temperature of BOF
According to the test of reducing tapping temperature of BOF, factors affect the tapping temperature are studied and measures to reduce temperature drop during tapping are raised. Results show that the average tapping temperature during test is 1672°C, which is 13°C lower than mass production; and the tapping temperature more than 1690°C only account for 14.28%, which is twenty percentage points lower than before; temperature drops during tapping is decreased from 99.0°C to 93.64°C, which 5.36°C lower than before.
