Calcium Carbide

Deoxidation, desulfurization and slag reduction in ladle treatment

Calcium Carbide is a highly powerful reagent for various applications in secondary metallurgy:

  • Desulfurization to ultra-low sulfur contents by injection of fine Calcium Carbide powder
  • Deoxidation and slag treatment by addition of coarse Calcium Carbide during tapping or at the ladle treatment station

Calcium Carbide is packed in containers from 1 to 1.5 t or in steel drums of 120 kg.
Different granulations are available.

 

Performance benefits:

  • Reduced costs and improved cleanliness due to gaseous deoxidation products
  • Ultra-low sulfur contents and slag with high sulfur capacity
  • Recovery of oxidized metals like Cr, Mn, Si, Fe
  • Fast reduction of aggressive furnace slag results in increased refractory life
  • Less consumption of synthetic slag and slag builders
