Kinetic Description of the Mass Transfer in Ladle Metallurgy Operations
In this work a kinetic model which describes the main refining reactions in a ladle furnace is depicted. The main difference between this work and other models previously reported relies on a formal quantification of the multi-component diffusion kinetics expressed as an analytical solution. Results from this model reproduce/predict adequately the chemical steps involved in an integrated steel shop.
