The Basic Oxygen Process (BOP), also known as the LD (Linz-Donawitz) process, is a steelmaking process that uses oxygen blown onto molten pig iron to reduce the carbon content and other impurities. The BOP is a highly efficient process that produces large quantities of high-quality steel.
In the BOP process, the molten pig iron is poured into a vessel known as a “converter.” The converter is a large cylindrical vessel lined with heat-resistant bricks that can withstand the high temperatures generated during the process. The converter is then tilted, and a lance is inserted into the vessel through an opening in the top.
