Hurman Eric School of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa During the last one decade, significant work has been carried on physical modeling of high strength bottom blown refining converters. Two perspex water models of the stainless steel/ferroalloy refining converters known as Creusot Loire Uddeholm (CLU) reactors were constructed; one a 1/7th, the other a 1/5th of the scale of the actual industrial units. Water represented the metal phase and paraffin oil the slag phase as and when required. Air representing the gas phase was blown at very high rates through nozzles located at the bottom of the vessels. The air ow rate ranged from 0.005m 3 /s to 0.02m 3 /s. The position of the tuyeres (nozzles) was also among the variables in some of the test work. Apart from geometric similarity, dynamic similarity was met through the use of modified dimensionless Froude number. In modeling the reactor, the variables/propertiessimilarity, dynamic similarity was met through the use of modified dimensionless Froude number....
