The chlorination of the titanium slag from titaniferrous magnetite by the arc-smelting in a fluidized bed reactor was investigated to produce $TiCl_4$ from domestic titaniferrous magnetite. The optimum conditions are as follows : reaction temperature; $950^{\circ}C$, reaction time; 90min, $Cl_2$ gas velocity; 3cm/sec, and petroleum coke-to-titanium slag weight ratio; 0.18. Also the mean diameter of titanium slag and petroleum coke was $44.6{\mu}m$ and $67.9{\mu}m$ respectively. Under these conditions 97.07% of Ti component in the titanium slag was chlorinated and the purity of $TiCl_4$ from this chlorination was 96.2%.
