Calculate the Total Cost of the Converter Process
The Process Metallurgy Module also allows you to calculate an optimum combination of amount of oxygen and amount of slag required to remove both C and P from the liquid steel for a given hot metal and slag composition. In the equilibrium example, about 5500 Nm3 of oxygen needs to be blown and about 2.7 t of high CaO slag former must be added.
Such a calculation not only predicts the amount of raw materials required, but also the amount of waste produced and the yield of the process. If the cost of the raw materials and the cost of recycling the produced slag is known, then this allows you to calculate and optimize the total cost of the converter process.
