The effects of Li2CO3 on melting temperature, viscosity, fluidity, surface tension and Al2O3 inclusion adsorption of mould flux for high speed continuous casting were studied. The results showed that with the increase of Li2CO3 content, melting temperature, viscosity and viscous activation energy of mould flux decreased obviously, fluidity increased, surface tension changed little, and Al2O3 inclusion adsorption of mould flux increased. In order to play an effective role, the Li2CO3 content… Expand

Structure and Properties of Slags Used in the Continuous Casting of Steel: Part 1 Conventional Mould Powders
The continuous casting of steel (shown in Fig. 1) is a very successful process and the performance of the mould powder is a key factor in this success. In this process, molten steel flows (from theExpand
Different Types of Mould Powders
The mould powder must carry out a series of tasks. Arguably, the most important of these tasks is the formation of a slag film which provides the optimum level of lubrication and heat extraction fromExpand
Technologies of lithium recycling from waste lithium ion batteries: a review
Although the interest in lithium recycling is increasing the current global lithium recycling rate is lower than 1%. For this reason, our paper aims to explain the needs, current state and futureExpand
