Ferrosilicon is an ferro alloy whose main components are silicon and iron. Ferrosilicon particle size refers to the size of ferrosilicon particles, usually expressed in mesh. Mesh number refers to the number of mesh openings per unit area, such as the number of mesh openings in one inch, and is often used to indicate the size of powder or granules. The unit of ferrosilicon particle size is mesh/inch.
2. The importance of ferrosilicon particle size
Ferrosilicon particle size has an important impact on the quality and application of ferrosilicon. The following are several important factors for ferrosilicon particle size:
①. Permeability of molten iron
The size and distribution of ferrosilicon particles will affect the permeability of molten iron. Ferrosilicon with uneven particle size will cause uneven penetration of molten iron, causing problems such as iron inlet plugging, affecting production efficiency and molten iron quality.
②. Smelting effect
The size of ferrosilicon particles will affect the smelting effect. Ferrosilicon particles that are too large or too small will affect the reaction rate and degree of reaction, thereby affecting product quality and production efficiency.
③. Storage and transportation of ferrosilicon
The size and distribution of ferrosilicon particle size will also affect the storage and transportation of ferrosilicon. Particles that are too large or too small increase the risk of accumulation and particle separation of ferrosilicon during storage and transportation.
3. Measurement and control of ferrosilicon particle size
The measurement and control of ferrosilicon particle size are crucial to ensuring ferrosilicon quality and efficiency. The usual measurement method is to use a vibrating screen for screening. Ferrosilicon plants can control ferrosilicon particle size by optimizing production processes and controlling the size and distribution of ferrosilicon particles.
Ferrosilicon particle size refers to the size of ferrosilicon particles, which has an important impact on the quality and application of ferrosilicon. Reasonable measurement and control of ferrosilicon particle size can improve the quality and production efficiency of ferrosilicon and reduce production costs.
