Detailed Product Description
Ferro silicon offered by us is a alloy of iron & silicon having between 15 & 90% silicon. Ferro silicon also contains high proportion of iron silicides and features melting point of about 1200 °C to 1250 °C with a boiling point of 2355 °C. Ferro nickel deoxidizing properties also prevents loss of carbon from the molten steels.
There are many practical applications of Ferro Silicon to include carbon steel and stainless steel production, and when using the Pidgeon process to produce magnesium from dolomite. Applications in the production of other alloys include the manufacture of silicon steel for electro motors and cores, as well as coatings used during arc welding. One useful by-product of the production processes is silica fume, which is later added to concrete mixes to improve compressive and bonding strength there.
Used in steel making & foundries in production of:
Carbon steel, Stainless steel and Other ferrous alloys.
Apart from this, it is also used for manufacturing:
Corrosion-resistant & high-temperature resistant ferrous silicon alloys
Silicon steel for electro-motors & transformer cores
