A dangerous mix of conditions and materials

Often called BOS – Basic Oxygen Steel-making – the converter process carries, quite literally, a dangerous mix of operating conditions and materials. Pressurized oxygen and molten bath temperatures as high as 3000 °C mix inside the converter, while converter bearings are exposed to high static loads, sometimes combined with severe vibration and slow rotating movements.
