Steel furnace slag is a co-product of the steel making process and Edw. C. Levy Co. reclaims this as a cost-effective and durable aggregate for road building. We utilize a state of the art Steel Slag Processing plant, located inside Emirates Steel’s factory in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi, to produce up to 500,000 tons Steel Slag Aggregate per year. However, slag could be used to treat acid soils or acid mine drainage. The compressive strength of concrete using steelmaking slag as fine aggregates is around 1.1 to 1.3 times of common concrete. Since 1993, steel slag aggregates have been used commercially in the region for road surfacing. Disposing of slag is a millennia-old problem , but the "waste material" is highly sought in construction. Chemical analysis is also observed to understand the effect of aging process in steel slag aggregate. The influences of different parameters, such as the eccentricity, the diameter–thickness ratio of the steel tube and the expansion rate of the steel slag aggregate concrete (SSAC) are studied. Steelmaking slag can also be used as an aggregate for high-strength and refractory concrete. In this study steel slag aggregate processed by several aging process was comparatively satisfied with fundamental properties as concrete aggregate, which are specific gravity, absorption, unit weight, percentage of solids and abrasion value etc. Ferrous slag is currently underutilized. Duraberm, which is made from steel furnace slag, is a strong and sustainable material that holds up under heavy truck traffic, provides long service life, and helps control project cost. Our plant is fed with steel slag from Emirates Steel’s electric arc furnaces. Clients include authorities in Singapore and Malaysia for both public and private roads. Concrete made with recycled steel slag is 17 percent stronger than traditional concrete. Doing so would both offset the cost of restoring abandoned mine areas, as well as decrease steel manufacturers’ current waste footprint. items containing steel slag, and is one motivation behind why steel slag aggregate are not utilized as a part of concrete development. Although the construction industry does use some slag as an aggregate, most is simply discarded. Processing Iron Slag and producing steel skull scrap and different sizes of slag aggregates and powders . The present research work deals with a view to develop efficient concrete by addition of steel slag to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of steel slag as a partial replacement in sand To replace Sand The slag aggregate comes from the treatment of slag generated during the steelmaking process in our electric arc furnace steelworks. LIME STONE Processing Limestone & producing good quality Limestone aggregates , sub bases, Sub-grades , filling materials and boulders for road and construction industry The applications of steel slag powder and steel slag aggregate in ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) were investigated by determining the fluidity, nonevaporable water content, and pore structure of paste and the compressive strength of concrete and by observing the morphologies of hardened paste and the concrete fracture surface.
