Abstract

Between splash height and cavity depth, a clear relationship was not found, but when Ar gas was blown to hot metal or oxygen gas was blown to low carbon content molten steel, a good relation was found. When Ar gas was blown to hot metal, carbon content of the splash particles were similar to that of a hot metal bath. When oxygen gas was blown to hot metal, low carbon-containing, small size particles were collected. The energy generated by gas formation when decarburization reaction took place was the primary affecting factor for splash formation rather than the kinetic energy of the top blown gas.
