Product Description

An alloy called ferro silicon is mostly made of silicon (Si) and iron (Fe). In an electric arc furnace, it is created by melting a combination of silica (SiO2), coke and iron scrap. In Ferro silicon, the proportion of silicon to iron can vary; common ratios range from 75 to 95% silicon to 2 to 5% iron. Small amounts of additional elements including calcium, aluminium, and carbon may also be present.


Ferro silicon is widely employed in many industries because of its useful qualities and uses. Ferro silicon's main characteristics are as follows: 

1. Ferro silicon is largely utilised in the manufacturing of steel and iron as a deoxidizing agent. It reacts with oxygen and other contaminants throughout the manufacturing process, efficiently eliminating them and raising the calibre of the finished product. It aids in lowering the carbon content and improves steel's mechanical qualities.

2. Ferro silicon is frequently used as an alloying ingredient to provide different alloys particular properties. It improves the alloys' tensile strength, hardness, and heat resistance. It is widely employed in the creation of speciality steels including stainless steel and low-alloy steel.

3. Ferro silicon has the ability to serve as an inoculant during the casting process. It facilitates the construction of a desirable structure and enhances the mechanical qualities of the castings by aiding in the regulation of graphite flakes' dispersion and production in cast iron.

4. Ferro silicon is used as a reducing agent in some metallurgical processes because of its high silicon concentration. Metal oxides that are produced during the extraction of metals from ores or the fabrication of ferroalloys can be reduced.

5. Ferro silicon is an abrasive substance that may be crushed into different grain sizes and utilised in a variety of processes, such as the production of grinding wheels, polishing solutions, and abrasive papers. It gives these items abrasive, harsh, and long-lasting qualities.

6. Ferro silicon is a magnetostrictive material, which means that it may alter its shape in response to a magnetic field. It is advantageous in applications like magnetostrictive transducers, sensors, and actuators because of its property.

7. Ferro silicon is widely utilised to produce castings in the foundry sector of the economy. During casting processes, it aids in regulating the carbon concentration, enhancing fluidity, and lowering shrinkage.

It's crucial to keep in mind that the precise applications and uses of Ferro silicon can change based on the composition's silicon and iron content, grain size, and other alloying elements.
