An experimental activity has been performed to monitor the trend in slag-metal composition and temperature during the process of oxidation within an EAF system equipped by multi-burner injection system in which the injectors are distributed along the circumference of the furnace side-walls. This issue is a fundamental aspect to achieve a good balance for reaching the metallurgical goals and the energy savings necessary to maintain a good mix between the chemical specifications and the energy efficiency. The last aspect represents one of the most important bases to grant the competitiveness of the plant. A reliable interpretation of the data obtained from the industrial plant can also be evaluated through the use of the predictions performed by a developed simulation model.1)
