Mass Transfer Kinetics in the Desulphurisation of Pig Iron with CaO and CaC2
This paper discusses the effect of the main parameters that affect the desulphurization reaction efficiency. The study was conducted by evaluating different reaction sites within the metal, the slag and the reducing agents. It was possible to establish a mass transfer model that determines the amounts of the reducing agents needed to maintain adequate sulphur levels in the pig iron. Industrial trials showed the accuracy of our model.
