Dolomite products are used as a refractory lining in treatment ladles and AOD converters in many steel mills both in Europe and worldwide.
The massive diffusion of the Dolomite is due to its low cost management, its refractory characteristics, and its low oxidation potential which, by not releasing oxygen to the liquid steel bath, make it suitable for working with basic slag and makes it particularly suitable for:
- Efficient desulfurization
- Reduction of non-metallic impurities
- Reduction of the clogging of casting nozzles
- Better yield of ferroalloys
