Hot Metal Desulfurization

For the hot metal desulfurization in the transfer and the torpedo ladles AlzChem offers highly effective products.

 

Our various CaD mixtures are based on finely ground and homogenized Calcium Carbide. Depending upon customers’ demand, different agents are added such as volatiles or slag modifiers to reduce iron losses.

 

Magnesium is injected together with CaD and/or Lime in the co-injection or multi-injection process in the hot metal ladle desulfurization.

 

Lime, treated by a special fluidization technique, has excellent properties for injection processes for both, hot metal desulfurization and secondary metallurgy applications.

Acetylene (C2H2) is the world's most efficient and hottest burning standard welding gas. For producing acetylene, the reaction of calcium carbide (CaC2) with water (H2O) is used, whereas acetylene and lime milk (Ca(OH)2) is generated.   CaC2 + 2 H2O --> C2H2 + Ca(OH)2   For this simple and proven process, AlzChem's calcium carbide is used for more than a century. Calcium carbide is of strategic value for AlzChem, as it is the basis of the NCN-chain. Originating...
