Webinar: Insights from computational and numerical models of furnace tapping processes
Join the Metallurgical Society for their webinar: Insights from computational and numerical models of furnace tapping processes.
About this event
Smelting furnaces contain extremely aggressive and temperamental fluids, slags, metals, mattes and salts. The majority of furnaces are tapped through ports in the furnace called tapholes. While furnaces have been tapped for thousands of years, much is still unknown.
Tapping has mainly been an experience based sub-process in the silicon and ferrosilicon production process. To get this part of the process into a more scientific area, represented by e.g. CFD modelling, conceptual models on the process is needed.
This webinar will discuss the challenges of tapping, the fundamental knowledge we have in this area and the work that is being performed.
