Magnesium yield

Magnesium yield obtained in relation to the quantity of magnesium deployed.

In addition to the magnesium content in the iron, the desulfurization work of the magnesium must also be taken into account. The calculation is carried out according to theequations 1 and 2 as follows:

Eq. 1:

Eq. 2:

MgY = Magnesium yield in %
MgR = Magnesium residual content in the iron in %
IS = Initial sulfur content in the base iron in %
FS = Final sulfur content in %
MgA = Magnesium addition in %
MAA = Master alloy addition in kg/t
Mg = Magnesium content in the master alloy in %
