Considering future uncertainties involving raw materials availability and price fluctuations in scrap and the development of hot metal pretreatment, a need is felt in the steel industry to improve heat compensation techniques. The paper analyzes phenomena involved in post combustion generation and heat transfer based on trials on the 6 t pilot converter at IRSID. It was found that three phenomena were determinative in the generation of post combustion in a combined blowing converter: the entrainment of the CO gas by the oxygen jet, the role of the oxygen jet as a burner and the gas-slag metal reactions near the bath surface.
