To better understand the mechanism of TiN agglomeration at a slag-metal interface, a 1LM21H confocal scanning laser microscope (CSLM) was employed to allow direct observation of TiN particles at a metal-slag interface. It was found that TiN precipitates at steel/slag interfaces do not dissolve readily in silicate slags, change their morphology with temperature at the slag meal interface, and can agglomerate due to the influence of fluid flow at a slag metal interface.
