18 Conclusions The surface tension of the iron solutions (steels) and metal-slag interfacial tension is affected mainly and non-linearly by such intensive surfactants like oxygen and sulphur. When the oxygen content is below 5 ppm, the sulphur dominantly determines the surface tension quantity. As to the slag solutions it was found that - for pure oxides - the highest surface tension levels exhibit the alkali oxides like CaO, MgO, MnO, FeO and Cr 2 O 3. The interfacial tension for metal/slag systems is predominantly set by the metal phase while the effect of the slag phase is secondary. Further progress in modeling of the surface properties for metallurgical systems depends to much extent on a supply of new, more precise experimental surface and interfacial tensions data to fill the lacking gaps.
