Abstract

The crystallization behavior of a CaO-Al2O3-based slag system with various ZrO2 content (from 1 to 5 wt pct) and CaO/Al2O3 (C/A) ratio (from 0.8 to 1.2) has been studied by using single hot thermocouple technology (SHTT) in this article. The continuous-cooling-transformation (CCT) diagrams and time-temperature- transformation (TTT) diagrams of the above slag system were constructed for the analysis of the varying crystallization behaviors. The results suggested that Al2O3 tended to enhance the slag samples crystallization when the C/A ratio ranged from 0.8 to 1.2, and the critical cooling rate and crystallization temperature increased with the decrease of C/A ratio; meanwhile, the incubation time was also getting shorter with the reduction of C/A ratio. The addition of ZrO2 would enhance the crystallization of slag samples because of the induced heterogeneous nucleation of molten slag. However, the general crystallization was determined by the balance between molten slag viscosity and heterogeneous nucleation, such that Sample 3 (C/A = 1.0, ZrO 2 = 3 pct, B2O3 = 10 pct, Li2O = 3 pct [in wt pct]) would demonstrate the strongest crystallization kinetics in a high-temperature zone. The different crystals formed during the tests were also analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD).
