A kinetic model of the 60% Mg and 40% CaO injection desulphurization was established. The simulation results from the model were verified by sampling, and it was in accord with the sampling results. By analyzing the model, the desulfurization process of high sulfur molten iron had three stages, incubation stage, rapid desulfurization stage and slow desulfurization stage. In order to improve the dynamic conditions and the utilization rate of the desulfurization agent, for the molten iron of sulfur content ≥0.035%, a new injection desurphurization mode was developed and applied. The smaller injection rate of powder and the larger flow rate of nitrogen were used in the slow desulfurization stage. Compared with the conventional process, the consumption of the desulfurizing agent is reduced by 10–20% by using the two-stage injection method.
