Abstract [en]

During the refining of 28CrMo47 drill pipe steel, it is found that the product often has internal defects and cracks. The present work is initiated with a view to examine if these problems could be solved by optimizing the slag chemistry of the refining slag. Three series of slags, namely, slag A (57.09%CaO-15.74%SiO<inf>2</inf>-16.35%Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>-5.35%MgO, original slag in the steel plant), slag B (55%CaO-21%SiO<inf>2</inf>-12%Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>-7%MgO-5%CaF<inf>2</inf>), and slag C (51%CaO-17%SiO<inf>2</inf>-25%Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>-7%MgO) are designed and their viscosities are measured. The effect of Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> content on viscosity of the slag C is also investigated as part of the slag optimization. Slag-steel equilibrium experiments are subsequently carried out in order to understand the effect of the slag chemistry, especially the variation in the Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> content in the same on the inclusions in drill pipe steel. It is concluded that both increasing Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> content of the slag used in the refining unit in the plant and addition of CaF<inf>2</inf> could decrease effectively the slag viscosity. Inclusions in steel equilibrated with slag C1, corresponding to 51%CaO-7%MgO-25%Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>-17SiO<inf>2</inf>, consisted mainly of low melting point CaO-Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> complex, which did not have any negative effect on the steel quality.
