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.
In production plants where no lance for powder injection is available at the ladle treatment station, CalciPro® cored wire proved to be an elegant solution to inject Calcium Carbide into liquid steel. Especially, the combination of lumpy Calcium Carbide for slag treatment and the deep injection of CalciPro® cored wire is a highly efficient technology to assure lowest sulfur levels.
