The ferrosilicon72 is one kind of the ferrosilicon, the content of silicon is not lower than 72%. it`s not only used as deoxidizer also used as reducing agent.
Used as reducing agent in ferroalloy production. It is not only the chemical affinity between silicon and oxygen, but also the low carbon content of silicon silicon. Therefore, high silicon ferrosilicon (or silicon alloy) is a common reductant in the production of low carbon iron alloys in ferroalloy industry.
In addition, in the steelmaking industry, the use of silicon iron powder in high temperature can release a lot of heat, which is often used as the heating agent of the steel ingot to improve the quality and recovery of the ingot.
