CalciPro® for Steel Desulfurization

CalciPro® cored wire is an established Calcium-treatment technology for inclusion modification to improve castability and to optimize material properties in commercial steel plants.

Calcium Carbide is well known as an effective desulfurization agent for hot metal in modern economic steel production. In addition, Calcium Carbide can also be used for liquid steel desulfurization.

METEC 2019

The world's leading experts meet at METEC, the International Trade Fair for Metallurgy, Steel Casting and Steel Production. Machines, plants and products for the steel industry, environmental protection, resource conservation or energy efficiency: METEC 2019 is a must for anyone who wants to take an active part in shaping tomorrow's industry.

CaD® - Hot metal desulfurization

CaD® is a powerful desulfurization agent based on fine calcium carbide (CaC2) powder. It is available in different grades, which consist of calcium carbide mixed with various supplements. As an example volatile coal powder increases both efficiency and reaction rate. Other additives can optimize slag properties and reduce iron losses.

CalciPro® - Cored wire based on Calcium Carbide

AlzChem introduced CalciPro®, a cored wire based on Calcium Carbide, in the market, which is used for Calcium treatment in secondary metallurgy. It converts alumina inclusions into calcium aluminates to prevent clogging with high efficiency and hence reliably improves castability. Moreover, it is an excellent solution to modify inclusions in order to enhance steel properties such as machinability.
