The technology for especially low-carbon steel production was developed with application of thermodynamic calculations on the basis of the active experiment, which included production of the low-carbon intermediate product in the arc steel furnace (ASF), its out-of-furnace treatment on the ladle--furnace installation (LFI) and vacuum apparatus of chamber type (VD), and a complex of investigations of the metal quality (mechanical properties, amount and morphology of the non-metal inclusions).
