The applicability of rotating rod technique in the study of lime dissolution in slag was investigated. Both computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and cold model experiments showed that the mass transfer due to radial velocity introduced by forced convection was zero if the rod was long. The mass transfer by forced convection was also less important in comparison with natural convection and diffusion when the rod was half length of the height of the bath. This finding was in accordance with the criteria put forward by the original work that the method could only be applicable when a thin disk (instead of rod) with big diameter and big liquid bath were used. To study the lime dissolution by forced convection a new experimental technique was developed. A cube was placed in the slag that was eccentrically stirred. The whole system, viz. the sample along with the slag could be quenched. The new technique could study the effect of forced convection on the dissolution. The microscopic study on the quenched slag-lime samples could reveal the dissolution mechanism successfully.
