The task of the flow system is to transport molten steel at a desired flow rate from the ladle into the mold and to deliver steel to the meniscus area that is neither too cold nor too turbulent. Many inclusion-related quality problems that originate during steel processing can be directly attributed to poor control of fluid flow conditions. In addition, the flow conditions should minimize exposure to air, avoid the entrainment of slag or other foreign material, aid in the removal of inclusions into the slag layer and encourage uniform solidification. Achieving these somewhat contradictory tasks requires careful optimization.
