FerroSilicon Iron with Best Price
Ferro silicon is produced by reduction of silica or sand with coke in the presence of iron. Typical sources of iron are scrap iron, millscale. Ferro silicons with silicon content up to about 15% are made in blast furnaces lined with acid fire bricks. Ferro silicons with higher silicon content are made in electric arc furnaces. The usual formulations on the market are ferro silicons with 15%, 45%, 75%, and 90% silicon. The remainder is iron, with about 2% consisting of other elements like aluminium and calcium. An overabundance of silica is used to prevent formation of silicon carbide.
We are mainly used in the manufacture of steel and cast iron and produce fine quality steel. Ferro Silicon is used to remove oxygen from steel for better quality and durability. Our clients also use Ferro Silicon to manufacture pre-alloys like Magnesium Ferro Silicon (FeSiMg). It is used to modify melted malleable iron.
