Abstract: Recent industrial investigations have shown thatthe very rapid reaction rates obtained in oxygen steelmaking processes are due to the formation of stable iron-in-slag emulsions which provide extremely large surface areas for the refining reactions. This paper draws upon existing know ledge of slag structures and low temperature emulsion concepts to describe mechanisms by which metal-in-slag emulsions are formed and stabilized.Iron-in-slag emulsions are shown to be created by the attachment of large silicate o…
