CaO-SiO2-FeO2-P2O5-MgO bearing slags are typically used in the basic oxygen steelmaking (BOS) process. The partition ratio of phosphorus between slag and steel is an index of the phosphorus holding capacity of the slag, which determines the phosphorus content achievable in the finished steel. The influence of factors such as FeO content and basicity on the phosphorus partition ratio was investigated at two different temperatures. The partition ratio initially increased with basicity but remained constant beyond a basicity of 2.5 to 2.6. An increase in the FeO content up to 18 to 20 mass pct was beneficial for the phosphorus partition at a basicity level of 2 to 3, but a higher concentration of FeO resulted in a decrease in the phosphorus partition ratio; the FeO concentration corresponding to this transition varied with basicity and temperature. At even lower basicities, however, the equilibrium phosphorus partition showed either no change, or a marginally decreasing trend, with an increase in the FeO content.
