Oxygen Steelmaking

- Online-Seminar -

Sep 28th, 2020 – Sep 30th, 2020seminar in english

Although oxygen steelmaking is a well-known process there are some current challenges for the operating engineer: process control and operating practices, environmental aspects, modelling and CFD. Next to these new questions the program also includes the important basics thermodynamics, chemical reactions kinetics, heat and mass balance and a lecture on tramp elements.
Our target groups are:
- Steel shop operating staff
- Employees in R&D
- Supervisors responsible for decisions on metallurgy, energy, purchasing and environmental protection
