Abstract Research techniques and a methodology have been developed that enable the reduction kinetics of molten lead smelting slags with solid carbon to be studied. The rates of reduction of PbO-FeO-Fe2O3-CaO-SiO2 slags with carbon have been measured for a range of slag compositions for PbO concentrations between 3 and 100 weight percent, and temperatures between 1423 and 1573 K. The reduction rates were determined for both graphite and coke. Within the range of process conditions examined, it has been shown that the reaction rates are almost independent of carbon reactivity, SiO2/CaO and SiO2/Fe ratio in the range of compositions investigated and are not influenced by the presence of sulphur in the slag.The apparent first order rate constants for oxygen removal increase with increasing PbO concentration and oxygen activity in the slag. The data indicate that the rate limiting reaction step for the reduction of lead slags with solid carbon is the chemical reaction at the gas/slag interface.
