Abstract

This review summarizes the significant results of high-temperature confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and single hot thermocouple technology (SHTT) and its application in observing the crystallization and growth in high-temperature oxide melts from iron- and steel-making slags to continuous casting mold fluxes. Using in situ observations of CLSM and SHTT images of high-temperature molten oxides with time, temperature, and composition, the crystallization behavior, including crystal morphology, crystallization temperature, initial nucleation and growth rate, could be obtained. The broad range of applications using in situ observations during crystallization have provided a wealth of opportunities in pyrometallurgy and is provided in this review.
