Flow field and mixing phenomenon in single snorkel degasser with ladle bottom blowing has been investigated by numerical method. The results show that the flow field inside the single snorkel vacuum degasser can be optimized in order to achieve higher recirculation rates and smaller mixing times, which are important to refining.
