Air Cooled Blast Furnace Slag

Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag is produced by Tata Steel IBMD

Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag is produced by Tata Steel IBMD, through slow solidification of molten blast furnace slag under atmospheric conditions, which results in a crystalline and vesicular structure.

Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag is hard but can be crushed and screened.

HOW IS AIR-COOLED BLAST FURNACE SLAG MADE?

Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag is formed from solidification of molten blast furnace slag in a slag pit under atmospheric conditions with some spraying of water to accelerate cooling so the materials can be moved to the processing plant.

Due to slow cooling rate, Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag forms a crystalline structure, which may contain some glassy and dense particles that can be crushed to produce an angular coarse aggregate.

Applications

Raw material for Mineral Wool

Raw material for Mineral Wool

Mineral wool is a high-quality, versatile fiber suitable for a variety of applications, including ceiling tiles, insulation, asphalt, cementitious reinforcement, friction products, fire protection systems, adhesives and fillers.

Aggregate in Road Making

Aggregate in Road Making

Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag aggregate demonstrates good friction resistance, good resistance to stripping, and better wear resistance. ACBF is also included in Indian Standards (IS Codes) for using it as a replacement of natural aggregates in different pavement layers.

Apart from the above applications, Air-Cooled Blast Furnace Slag can also be used as an aggregate in light-weight concrete.
