Ferrochrome converter

The purpose of a ferrochrome converter (CRC) is to remove silicon as well as part of carbon from the molten ferrochrome by blowing oxygen into the melt. The CRC process produces raw material for the AOD converter used in stainless steel production, whereas the raw materials of the CRC are molten ferro-chrome with high silicon and carbon contents and stainless steel scrap. Therefore, the CRC process serves effectively as a link between the ferrochrome production and the production of stainless steels. At Process Metallurgy Research Unit, the research has focussed on the chemical reactions and their equilibria in the metal bath.
