PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Ferrosilicon is an alloy of iron and silicon. Ferrosilicon is coke, steel chips, quartz (or silica) as raw materials, with electric furnace smelting made of ferrosilicon alloy.

Ferrosilicon is often used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking. At the same time, due to the release of a lot of heat when SiO2 is generated, it is also beneficial to improve the temperature of molten steel at the same time of deoxidation. Ferrosilicon can also be used as alloying element addition agent, widely used in low alloy structural steel, spring steel, bearing steel, heat-resistant steel and electrical silicon steel, ferrosilicon in ferroalloy production and chemical industry, commonly used as reducing agent.

Ferro Silicon Alloy Application 

1、Used as deoxidizer and alloying agent in steelmaking industry. In order to obtain steel with qualified chemical composition and ensure the quality of steel, deoxidation must be carried out in the final stage of steel making. The chemical affinity between silicon and oxygen is very large, so ferrosilicon is a strong deoxidizer used in steel making for precipitation and diffusion deoxidation. Adding a certain amount of silicon to steel can significantly improve the strength, hardness and elasticity of steel, so in the smelting of structural steel, ferrosilicon is also used as alloying agent.

2、Used as inoculant and spheroidizing agent in the cast iron industry. Cast iron is an important metal material in modern industry, it is cheaper than steel, easy to melt smelting, has excellent casting performance and much better seismic ability than steel.

3、Used as reducing agent in the production of ferroalloy. Not only the chemical affinity between silicon and oxygen is great, but also the high silicon iron silicon has a very low carbon content. Therefore, high silicon ferrosilicon (or siliceous alloy) is a reducing agent commonly used in the production of low carbon ferroalloys in the ferroalloy industry.

4、75 iron silicon in the Pijiang process of magnesium smelting is often used in the high temperature smelting process of metal magnesium, Cao, Mgo in the replacement of magnesium, each production of a ton of metal magnesium will consume about 1.2 tons of iron silicon, metal magnesium production plays a great role.

5、Other uses. Pulverized or atomized ferrosilicon powder can be used as suspension phase in mineral processing industry. It can be used as coating for welding electrode in welding electrode manufacturing industry. High silicon ferrosilicon can be used in the chemical industry to make products such as silicone.
