Abstract: Approximately 90 % of world’s crude steel production is casted using a continuous casting process where the liquid steel flows from ladle to tundish next to mold in a continuous casting system. In modern steelmaking and continuous casting plants, tundish technology from both fundamental and practical point of view is most important. Steel is produced in three basic route like, basic oxygen furnace (BOF), electric arc furnace (EAF) & induction furnace (IF). BOF hot metal and scrap are blown by oxygen gas with a flux addition such as lime etc. A modern EAF produces steel by remelting and refining steel from DRI, scrap and other raw materials, and also uses oxygen gas injection and lime addition. In induction furnace main input raw materials are DRI & scrap.The steel melt with dissolved oxygen thus produced is tapped into a ladle, where it is deoxidized with ferroalloys, Fe-Si, Fe-Si-Mn, and/or metallic aluminum. The deoxidation products,such as silica, manganosilicates, alumina...
