The characteristics of non-metallic single inclusions and clusters formed in a Fe-10mass% Ni alloy deoxidized with Ti, Al and Ti/AI were investigated. Laboratory experiments were performed, and samples were taken after deoxidation. The composition, number and size of the single inclusions and clusters in the samples were determined using SEM in combination with EDX. The agglomeration mechanism and collision rates of inclusions and clusters were considered in the Al and Ti/AI deoxidation experiments. The obtained results showed that the number and average size of clusters in all samples of the complex Ti/AI experiment are drastically smaller than those in the Al experiment. The Brownian, Stokes' and turbulent collisions between particle-particle in clusters, particle-cluster and cluster-cluster were evaluated to determine the cluster formation in the different deoxidation experiments depending on the holding time.
