Ferrosilicon Powder Application
In steelmaking industry, ferrosilicon mainly used as deoxidizer and alloying agent. Adding a certain amount of silicon to the molten steel can significantly increase the strength, hardness and elasticity of the steel. At the same time, improving the inclusion form reduces the content of gas elements in molten steel, which is to improve the quality of the steel and reduce costs.
In iron cast industry, ferrosilicon can be used as inoculant and spheroidizing agent. Adding certain amount of ferrosilicon to the cast iron can prevents the formation of carbides and promotes the precipitation and spheroidization of graphite.
