Abstract:A new solution called component modification in-process was introduced to the difficult grinding of air quenching steel slag by a series of experiments. The results show that the fly ash added into the molten steel slag before air quenching can more effectively improve the slag’s grindability than milltailings, which is the other modification agent tested under the same conditions. The role of fly ash is strengthened as its proportion increases, although the degree of promotion is gradually reduced. As a result of the reaction between fly ash and steel slag at high temperature, some new mineral phases and vitreous bodies with fine grindability promote the slag grinding easily. This work is helpful to making a comprehensive utilization of steel slag and maximize its economic efficiency in China.
