New Steelmaking Technology from the Bureau of Mines. Proceedings of an Open Industry Briefing Held in Association With the Electric Furnace Conference, December 8, 1987, Chicago, Il.
This report is a proceedings of a briefing sponsored by the Bureau of Mines at which Bureau personnel presented findings from their research efforts to improve steelmaking technology currently used in the United States. The papers contained in this report address many areas of concern to the iron and steelmaking industry. Among these are improving arc stability in electric arc furnaces, preheating ferrous scrap to reduce energy consumption, fluorspar substitutes in steelmaking, basic steelmaking refractories, corrosion of iron-based materials, improvements in stainless steel acid pickling processes, recycling of stainless steel dusts and other wastes, and use of wastes as a source of zinc for electrogalvanizing.
