  1. 1. An Experimental Study to Improve the Casting Performance of Steel Grades Sensitive for Clogging

    Author : Jennie Svensson; Pär Jönsson; Voicu Brabie; Lauri Holappa; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Preheating; Decarburization; RBM; Clogging; SEN; Plasma sprayed coating; CaTiO3; YSZ; Continuous casting; Pilot plant trials; Industrial plant trials; Clean steel; Tundish; Non-metallic inclusions; MISS; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Steel Forming and Surface Engineering; Stålformning och ytteknik;

    Abstract : In this study, the goal is to optimize the process and to reduce the clogging tendency during the continuous casting process. The focus is on clogging when the refractory base material (RBM) in the SEN is in contact with the liquid steel. READ MORE

  2. 2. Slag, Steel, Ladle and Non-metallic Inclusions Equilibria in an ASEA-SKF Ladle Furnace

    Author : Kamrooz Riyahimalayeri; Malin Selleby; Johan Björkvall; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Clean steel; Top slag; Non-Metallic Inclusions; Oxides; Vacuum Degassing; Deoxidation; Desulphurization; Equilibrium; Computational Thermodynamics; Scanning electron microscopy;

    Abstract : This study explores the possibility of prediction and modification of some of the physicochemical properties of non-metallic inclusions by considering top slag-steel-ladle equilibria in an ASEA-SKF ladle furnace. To test the reliability of an available computational thermodynamic computer program, the first sub project was done. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inclusion Characteristics and Their Link to Tool wear in Metal Cutting of Clean Steels Suitable for Automotive Applications

    Author : Niclas Ånmark; Andrey Karasev; Pär Göran Jönsson; Thomas Björk; Jinming Zhou; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tool wear; PCBN; Machinability; Steel; Non-metallic inclusions; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis covers some aspects of hard part turning of carburised steels using a poly‑crystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN) cutting tool during fine machining. The emphasis is on the influence of the steel cleanliness and the characteristics of non‑metallic inclusions in the workpiece on the active wear mechanisms of the cutting tool. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Study of Slag/Metal Equilibrium and Inclusion Characteristics during Ladle Treatment and after Ingot Casting

    Author : Hamid Doostmohammadi; Pär Jönsson; Lauri Holappa; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; inclusions; thermodynamics; ladle treatment; vacuum; tool steel; bearing steel; slag; equilibrium; slag carryover; oxides; sulfides.; Metallurgical process engineering; Metallurgisk processteknik;

    Abstract : Today, there is a high demand on clean steel for high performance materialproperties. Thus, steel producers try to deliver a steel product with the highestquality and cleanliness to the market. The number of parameters that affect thesteel cleanliness may vary depending on the required material properties of thefinal product. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Study on the Reaction between MgO Based Refractories and Slag-Towards the Development of Carbon-free Lining Material

    Author : Huijun Wang; Sichen Du; Stuart Millman; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MgO refractory; lining material; carbon-free; clean steel; ladle glaze; slag penetration; dissolution mechanism; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : In present thesis, the fundamental studies on the reaction between MgO based refractories and slag were undertaken for the development of a carbon-free bonding MgO lining material. Alumina was selected as a potential binder material. Due to MgO-Al2O3 chemical reaction, the developed refractory was bonded by MgO·Al2O3 spinel phase. READ MORE
