What is the difference between converter steelmaking and electric furnace steelmaking? Let Slag Limiting Dart Supplier tell you the answer today.
The difference between them is reflected in:
1. Different raw materials: The electric furnace does not require raw materials, and the converter molten iron accounts for 90%.
2. Different energy consumption: the converter consumes oxygen, while the electric furnace consumes electricity and oxygen.
3. Different tapping: no steel is left in the converter, and the electric furnace is left in steel.
4. Different product stability: The composition of the tapping steel in the electric furnace is relatively stable, but the converter has a large difference.
Converter steelmaking: The furnace body of the converter can be rotated, and the outer casing is made of steel plate, and the inside is lining with refractory material. Converter steelmaking does not require additional heating, thus reducing energy consumption, so it is widely used in steelmaking. Converter steelmaking process:
Converter steelmaking process: blast furnace hot metal → hot metal pretreatment → double blowing converter steelmaking → furnace refining → continuous casting → hot rolling.
Electric furnace steelmaking: The heat source of electric steelmaking is electric energy. The electric arc furnace has an electrode made of graphite. The electrode can emit a strong arc between the end and the charge, and has extremely high thermal energy. Therefore, electric arc furnaces are often used to smelt alloy steel and carbon steel. The electric arc furnace is mainly made of scrap steel. After the charge is installed, the lid will be covered and the electrode will then fall close to the surface of the charge.
