Abstract

The separation of slag and kish from hot metal is essential in supplying the lowest possible sulfur input to the BOF. This paper describes taphoes in hot metal torpedo cars as a simple, effective means of achieving this separation, and outlines the benefits gained from tapholes in the production of tower sulfur steel.
