Vacuum Degassing (VD)

A vacuum degassing plant has been set up to remove gaseous impurities from the liquid steel. The main process highlights are as under:

  • After placing the ladle in the VD Vessel and sealing the cover processing starts.
  • Vacuum is achieved by operating different ejectors with the help of super saturated steam.
  • Under vacuum, following "Sievert's Law" the gaseous content in liquid steel decreases, depending on their partial pressure and longevity of treatment.
  • Due to Argon Purging under vacuum the non-globular shaped inclusions are arrested to the active basic slag.
