By adopting a gas jet principle in developmental metal smelting research, the combustion, heating effect, and the flow distribution of a new ladle configuration can be simulated. In this paper, using universal fluid software, the relation between the structure, the flow distribution, and the temperature distribution is examined. The study results indicate that a new ladle heater, in which gas jet technology and high-temperature air combustion technology are adopted, can improve the bake effect and the temperature uniformity of the ladle lining effectively. These methods can also cut down on pollution emissions.
