Sample text

Unlike the basic oxygen process, the EAF does not use hot metal, but uses “cold” steel scraps, which would otherwise be unsightly and environmentally damaging. It can be charged with limited amounts of iron scrap, pig iron and direct reduced iron. 6b. The three graphite electrodes that heat the furnace pass through the lid. An electric current is passed through the electrodes to form an arc. The heat generated by this arc melts the scrap. During the melting process, other metals (ferro-alloys) are added to the steel to give it the required chemical composition.

In other operations, they use CaF2 for further refining purposes. Then the ladle slag consists mainly of CaO and SiO2 . 4 Mineral composition of steel slag Since the chemical composition of steel slag varies significantly from source to source, it can be expected that the mineralogical composition of steel slag can be very different from source to source. Reported minerals in steel slag include olivine, merwinite, C3 S, -C2 S, -C2 S, C4 AF, C2 F, RO phase (CaO-FeO-MnO-MgO solid solution), free-CaO and free-MgO (Shi 2004b).

1 Definition of pozzolans The term “pozzolan” comes from the US simplification of “pozzolana” which derived from the location “Pozzuoli, Italy”. Here the Romans found a reactive silica-based material of volcanic origin which they called “pulvis puteolanus” (Everett 1967). Today, both the terms “pozzolan” and “pozzolana” are used. According to ASTM C 618 (2003), a pozzolan is defined as a “siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material which in itself possesses little or no cementitious value but will, in finely divided form and in the presence of moisture, chemically react with calcium hydroxides at ordinary temperatures to form compounds possessing cementitious properties”.
