Topic: Dry Slag Atomization Technology
Abstract: Slag Atomization is a new technology in creating PS Ball. With the use of Slag Atomization Technology, the unstable fusion of slag metals shall be transformed into an eco-friendly Spinel structured product; PS Ball. It is a state of the art technology that changes 75% of slag metal to PS Balls.
