Abstract
Rice husk ash (RHA) has been widely used as an insulation powder in steel casting tundish. Its effect on the reoxidation of molten steel in tundish as well as on the corrosion of magnesia refractory was investigated. The reoxidation of the steel, indicated by an oxygen pickup, was progressed by increasing the ratio of RHA to the sum of RHA and carryover ladle slag (R ratio) greater than about 0.2. The increase of the silica activity in the slag layer promoted the self-dissociation of SiO2 from the slag layer into the molten steel, resulting in the silicon and oxygen pickup as the R ratio increased. The total number of reoxidation inclusions dramatically increased and the relative fraction of Al2O3-rich inclusions increased by increasing the R ratio. Hence, the reoxidation of molten steel in tundish might become more serious due to the formation of alumina-rich inclusions as the casting sequence increases. MgO in the refractory directly dissolved into the molten slag layer without forming any intermediate compound layer (e.g., spinel), which is a completely different situation from the general slag-refractory interfacial reaction. A flow was possibly induced by the bursting of gas bubbles at the ash-slag (-refractory) interface, since the silica in the RHA powder continuously dissolved into the molten slag pool. Thus, the RHA insulation powder has a negative effect on the corrosion of MgO refractory.
