Abstract

The current work investigates dynamic phenomena at the microstructural level during iron and manganese recovery from the liquid FeO-CaO-SiO 2-MnO slags using an oxidation method. A hot-stage-equipped confocal scanning laser microscope (CSLM) was used to analyze the kinetic behavior of crystallization in synthetic slags. Based on observed precipitations on cooling in the 1273 K (1000 °C) to 1873 K (1600 °C) temperature range, a time- temperature-transformation (TTT) diagram has been created. The crystallization studies were conducted in air.
