It is well known that the non-metallic inclusions and clusters (especially, the large size inclusions and clusters) in steels have significant harmful effects on the mechanical properties of final products. Therefore, it is important to carry out a precise quantitative analysis of inclusion and cluster characteristics in metal samples at different stages of steel production. According to the obtained experimental results during the last years, it was found that the three-dimensional (3-D) investigation of inclusions and clusters on a film filter after electrolytic extraction of steel samples (EE) has a major advantageous in comparison to commonly used two-dimensional (2-D) observations on a polished cross section of metal samples. Experimental results focusing mainly on investigations of large size inclusions and clusters in different steels are discussed in this study.
