Iron and steel

The largest use of lime is in steel manufacturing, where it serves as a flux to remove impurities.  Quicklime — both high calcium and dolomitic — enjoys its most extensive use as a flux in purifying steel in the electric arc furnace (EAF) and basic oxygen furnace (BOF).  Lime is particularly effective in removing phosphorus, sulfur, and silica, and, to a lesser extent, manganese.  Lime also has important uses in secondary refining of steel and in the manufacture of steel products.  High calcium and dolomitic lime used in the steel industry must meet exacting physical and chemical properties.
