What the course covers
The course covers the process control requirements for managing the primary basic oxygen steelmaking process to ensure good refining. The course will discuss the information and controls required to ensure steel is made by the BOS process in specification, within the timescales required for downstream processing.
Main topics covered are charge balancing, slag development, lance height control, prevention of slopping, blow endpoint control using inblow sampling and moves towards process automation
The learning objectives are:
- To understand how the BOS converter is controlled during steelmaking to obtain the desired end goal
- To highlight how good process control is the key to consistency of operation
- To understand the importance of accurate information on process control performance
Who should access the course?
Practitioners in the steel industry, such as scientists, researchers, technologists, technology managers and operations and operational management. Those who are, or who aspire to be senior leaders within the steel industry or academia.
