Resumo

Research on the topic ‘steel slag’ has grown worldwide. In fact, since 2005 the number of articles published per year has nearly doubled. Nevertheless, even the known (pseudo-quaternary) system CaO-MgO-SiO2-Al2O3 presents lack of data regarding the subjects: phases present at the equilibrium state and physicochemical properties. This slag system plays important roles during the secondary refining of steel, such as: protection of refractory, sulfur level adjustment and absorption of non-metallic inclusions. Accordingly, the knowledge of the solid/liquid ratio considering, for instance, binary basicities (CaO/SiO2) and MgO content, is full of significance. And, with respect to slag properties, the importance of viscosity stands out clearly. This property has an influence, for example, in metal-slag reactions and slag-refractory interactions, among others. Consequently, the objectives of this work are: (i) to perform a thermodynamic study of the phases at equilibrium at a high basicity value; and (ii) to evaluate the slag viscosity (from literature data and via thermodynamic software) as a function of the slag composition, establishing therefore a critical analysis with the published data. To achieve the proposed aims, the thermodynamic FactSage v. 6.3 software will be employed.
