electroslag refining


electroslag refining
a specialized steel making process in which a rolled or a cast ingot in the form of an electrode is remelted in a water cooled copper mold. The melting is activated by resistive heat generated in a conductive slag. The resulting product has a similar basic chemical composition to the original ingot, but is characterized by high purity and low inclusion content. Typical applications include high integrity components for the aerospace industry.
