two factors affecting the quality of ferrosilicon

Ferrosilicon powder must be familiar to everyone. It is to press the ferrosilicon block into powder. Commonly used are 75#, 72#, 70#, 65#, 60# ferro silicon powder.

Two factors affecting the quality of ferro silicon

1. Silica

Silica is the raw material for making ferrosilicon. The impurity content and particle size of silica are both important factors affecting the quality of ferrosilicon powder.

2. Coke

The coke used to produce ferrosilicon powder must have low internal ash content. At the same time the water content should also be less. High ash content will affect the sintering of metallurgical materials and affect the permeability of ferrosilicon. If the water content is too high, the temperature in the ferrosilicon powder furnace will be difficult to control and affect the quality of the ferrosilicon powder.

The above are the two factors that affect the quality of ferro silicon powder.

Which industries are ferrosilicon powder used in?

1. Application in the cast iron industry: Ferrosilicon powder can be used as an inoculant and a nodularizing agent in cast iron. Ferrosilicon powder can effectively improve the performance and shock resistance of cast iron. It can greatly improve the mechanical properties of ductile iron.

2. Application in ferroalloy industry: Ferrosilicon powder can be used as a reducing agent in the production of ferroalloy. The silicon element inside it has an affinity for oxygen. At the same time, the low carbon content of ferrosilicon powder is a commonly used reducing agent in the production of low carbon ferroalloys in the ferroalloy industry.

3. Application in magnesium smelting products: In the process of magnesium smelting, ferrosilicon powder can effectively precipitate magnesium element. To produce one ton of metal magnesium will consume about 1.2 tons of ferrosilicon, which plays a great role in the production of metal magnesium.
