Abstract

A technology for comprehensive maintenance of converter refractory linings has been developed at the Krivorozhstal’ ISW. The technology is based on the use of flame gunning and slag splashing for building up a protective coating layer on the refractory lining. The newly developed maintenance technology permits substantial extension of the converter campaign and significant cost saving of steel production.
