Ferro Silicon is an alloy of Iron and Silicon containing Calcium, Aluminium, Carbon etc. as impurities.
The main raw material is Quartzite for production of Ferro Silicon which contains more than 98% SiO2. The Oxygen part of SiO2 is taken out by reduction by Carbon present in reducer like Charcoal, coal, coke etc. After reduction of SiO2, free Silicon is alloyed inside the furnace with free Iron which comes from Mild Steel Scrap or by reduction of Iron Oxide of Gas Cutting, Mill Scale etc. by the above reducers. Carbon paste and electricity are other two raw materials for the production of the same.
Ferro Silicon is mainly used as a deoxidiser in the production of Steel. As an alloying element for Steel. In the making of electrical Steel.In the production of Anti-corrosive and Acid Resistant Steel.In the manufacturing of Power Rectifiers.In the manufacturing of Welding Electrodes
