A thermo-gravimetric technique was used to determine the hydrogen solubilities of some Al2O3-CaO-MgO-SiO2 quaternary slags. The focus of the work was to determine the water capacities in slags having lower SiO2 concentrations, which were relevant to industrial practices. The majority of the experiments were carried out in the temperature interval 1747 to 1827 K with water pressure of 157 mbar. The reliability of the experiments was confirmed using a quenching technique. The temperature was found to have a negligible effect on the water solubilities. The composition of the slag did not seem to significantly affect the water capacity. However, as the slag composition approached CaO saturation, a considerable increase of the solubility was noticed.
