Metal silicon manufacturers say the difference between silicon carbon alloy and ferrosilicon

DATE: Dec 22nd, 2022
As far as silicon metal manufacturers know, both silicon-carbon alloys and ferrosilicon can be used in the steelmaking industry, so what are the differences between the two? Silicon metal manufacturers to introduce to you!

The price difference between silicon carbon alloy and ferrosilicon, silicon carbon alloy is a new type of ferroalloy product, silicon carbon alloy is cheaper than ferrosilicon, when purchasing the same type of ferrosilicon, silicon carbon alloy can often be cheaper 2/ 5. Therefore, in the case of rising ferrosilicon prices, it is a better choice for silicon metal and silicon manufacturers to save costs; the difference between silicon-carbon alloys and ferrosilicon element content, silicon-carbon alloys are cheaper than ferrosilicon, so in the content On the one hand, there will be a slight decline compared to ferrosilicon, but the decline range is small, and it can be used instead of ferrosilicon, and considering the price advantage of silicon-carbon alloys, silicon-carbon alloys are a better choice; silicon-carbon alloys and silicon-carbon alloys The difference in the use effect of iron, silicon-carbon alloy can be used instead of silicon-iron, but there will still be a certain difference in the use effect, put silicon-carbon alloy in use, because the silicon-carbon alloy is slightly lower than the silicon-iron element, so It will be inferior to ferrosilicon in terms of deoxidation and slag removal, but it does not affect normal use.

Silicon in silicon-carbon alloys has a graphitization effect, so it is generally combined with manganese in steel as a carbide stabilizer. A commonly used deoxidizer. The main function of silicon is that in electrical sheet steel, silicon improves the magnetic permeability and resistivity and allows very low hysteresis loss. The content of silicon in these steels ranges from 0.5 to 4.5%; silicon makes some high temperature resistant; Silicon combines with manganese to increase hardenability, strength and impact toughness. The main function of carbon is to increase the strength, hardness and hardenability of steel with the increase of carbon content in steel; but reduce the plasticity, toughness, magnetic properties and electrical conductivity. Carbon and some alloying elements in steel combine to form various carbides, which have different effects on the properties of steel. The above is the common sense of silicon-carbon alloys analyzed by metal silicon manufacturers, and I hope it will be helpful to you.
