The high temperature slag discharged from metallurgical industry has the characteristics of high temperature and large discharge. In 2017, the total amount of liquid slag produced by the world iron and steel industry is about 913 million tons and the amount of waste heat resources contained in liquid slag is equivalent to about 38 million tons of oil equivalent. It has great value of waste heat recovery and resource utilization. Among all kinds of slag treatment methods, dry centrifugal granulation has the advantages of small particle size and high vitrification, which is a developmental slag treatment process. The slag particles produced by centrifugal granulation are typical semimelt and wide-screening particles. This paper reviews the current status of basic scientific research of gas-solid heat transfer, solid-solid heat transfer and phase evolution of semi-melt particles by scholars all over the world. On this basis, in order to achieve efficient waste heat recovery and resource utilization of centrifugal granulated blast furnace slag particles, this paper puts forward specific research contents and technical development ideas about the heat transfer mechanism of semi-melt and wide-screening particles and the hightemperature waste heat recovery technology of hightemperature slag particles.
