A Sulfur Diffusion Investigation in Metal and Oxide Phases
The purpose of the present work is to investigate the mutual interaction between the melted metal and oxide phases with a small amount of sulfur. In this research, the following phases took part: metallic phase of Fe – C – S and slag CaO–Al2O3 –MgO–S. The mathematical model of sulfur diffusion in the metal and oxide is employed. The experiment was carried out at the temperature of 1773K. The result of the calculation is in qualitative agreement with the experiment. The proposed approach can be applied to the investigations of diffusion processes in molten metal and slag phases.
