What is silicon carbon alloy? How is it different from ferrosilicon?

Date: 04-28-2022
 Si-C alloy is a new type of alloy for converters. It can replace ferrosilicon, silicon carbide, and carburizer, reduce the amount of deoxidizers, and be used in converter smelting and deoxidization alloying processes. The effect is stable, and the chemical composition, mechanical properties and The internal control quality is superior to the traditional process. Its characteristics: improve the quality of molten steel, improve the quality of products, improve the new energy of products, reduce the amount of alloy added, reduce the cost of steelmaking, and increase economic benefits.
Both silicon carbon alloy and ferrosilicon contain silicon element, which can be applied to steelmaking and casting industries, and play a very important role in it. So, what is the main difference between the two?
1. Silicon carbon alloy is a new type of ferroalloy. Compared with ferrosilicon, silicon carbon alloy is cheaper. When purchasing the same type of ferrosilicon, silicon carbon alloy can often be 2/5 cheaper. Therefore, when the price of ferrosilicon rises Lower silicon carbon alloy is a better choice for manufacturers to save cost.
2. Because the price of silicon carbon alloy is cheaper than that of ferrosilicon, there will be a slight decrease in content compared with ferrosilicon, but the decrease range is small and can completely replace the use of ferrosilicon, and considering the content of silicon carbon alloy Price advantage, silicon carbon alloy is a better choice.
3. Silicon carbon alloy can be used instead of ferrosilicon, but there will still be some differences in the use effect. When silicon carbon alloy is put in use, because silicon carbon alloy is slightly lower than ferrosilicon, it can be used in deoxidation and slag removal. Compared with ferrosilicon, it will be inferior in other aspects, but it will not affect the normal use at all.
