Usually steel slag is produced during the smelting process in some ways. Firstly, steel slag represents undesired impurities in the metals being smelted, which float to the top during the steel slag crusher machine smelting process. Secondly, metals start to oxidize as they are smelted, and steel slag forms a protective crust of oxides on the top of the metal being smelted, protecting the liquid metal underneath. When the metal is smelted to satisfaction, the slag is skimmed from the top and disposed of in a slag heap to age. Steel slag is an important part of the process, as it needs to be exposed to the weather and allowed to break down slightly before it can be used.

Steel slag are produced at steel melting shop during steel manufacturing. To produce steel, removal of excess silicon and carbon from iron is achieved through oxidation by adding limestone and coke. The steel slag contains higher amount of iron and its physical characteristics are similar to air-cooled iron slag. The iron content is the major basic difference between BF slag and steel slag.
Jaw Crusher is primary used for crushing big lumps of slag from the slag pot. As the slag fed into the jaw crusher heavy duty Hardened Jaw crushes the big lumps of slag into medium size which then goes to next process. Jaw Crusher is also used by various industries for crushing coal, rock, refractory, glass & stone etc.
