The Role and Use of Aluminum in Steel Production


Aluminum is very important in controlling steel oxidation level. As a result it also controls the ingot structure and hence the steel properties. This paper discusses the various types of aluminum used in steel production. The recovery of aluminum as a function of steel type and carbon level as well as the importance of consistent recovery are also discussed.
