Objective

The goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a fast slag analysis at the vacuum degasser for a better production control in secondary steel making. Sampling procedures from the vacuum degasser plant under vacuum conditions will be performed for different operational parameters.

The resulting physical properties of the slag samples and their applicability for a fast analysis are investigated. A new method for laser optical emission spectrometry (laser OES) will be developed by spatial averaging with laser beam shaping and adapted sample scanning.
