    Abstract: Continuous casting of low carbon low silicon steel processed though Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) followed by Online Purging station (OLP) and Ladle Furnace (LF) inherently suffers from the problem of clogging of submerged entry nozzles (SEN) during casting due to gradual alumina deposition at the inner surface of the refractory wall. This restricts t... Show More
