The formation of a slag glaze layer on dense and porous MgO rods was studied by dipping MgO rods into liquid slag at 1873 K and thereafter cooling the rods at a predetermined cooling rate. Three different slag compositions and three different cooling rates were employed. It was found that the phases formed upon cooling were mostly dependent on slag composition and to a minor extent on the cooling rate. The initially liquid slag was transformed into crystalline phases for all the samples except the ones terminated at 1573 K and one of the samples with high cooling rate. In addition, the three slags were equilibrated at 1773, 1673 and 1573 K in order to get an understanding of the equilibrium phases and their relationship during cooling. On the basis of the experimental results, the mechanism regarding entrainment of exogenous inclusions from the refractory lining was also discussed.
