The price and use of silicon slag Temporary JobJan 7th, 2022 at 07:58 Engineering Babadag 19 views
As one of the metallurgical materials purchased in large quantities by manufacturers, silicon slag has an irreplaceable advantage. The price of silicon slag is relatively low compared with other ferroalloy products, but it has a wide range of uses. Silicon slag is the residue left after the refining of silicon ore, which also contains a lot of silicon content.The use of silicon slag is also more extensive.
High Carbon Silicon
High carbon silicon, also known as high carbon ferrosilicon,high carbon metal silicon or silicon carbon alloy. This product is a by-product of the production of metal silicon.
The main components are silicon and carbon. Generally required between silicon 40-70%. The carbon content is between 10-25%. Other ingredients are: silica, phosphorus, sulfur and so on. It can replace ferrosilicon, silicon carbide, carbonizer. And Reduce the amount of deoxidizer. It can be used in converter smelting deoxidation alloy process.
The shortage in silicon metal, sparked by a production cut in China, has sent prices up 300% in less than two months. It’s the latest in a litany of disruptions, from snarled supply chains to a power crunch, that are creating a destructive mix for companies and consumers.
The silicon issue also captures how the global energy crisis is cascading through economies in multiple ways. The slashing of output in China, far and away the world’s biggest silicon producer, is the result of efforts to reduce power consumption.ApplicationHigh carbon silicon 6818 can be used for all kinds of ordinary steels to deoxidize, increase silicon, increase carbon during casting, and quickly deoxidize, with early slag formation, dense reducing atmosphere, and effectively improve the element recovery rate, so that the quality of molten steel is stable.High carbon silicon 6515 can replace ferrosilicon, silicon carbide, recarburizer, reduce the amount of deoxidizer, used in converter smelting deoxidation alloying process, the effect is stable, steel chemical composition, mechanical properties and internal control quality are better than traditional processes. High carbon silicon 6515 improve the quality of molten steel, improve product quality, improve product capabilities, reduce the amount of alloy added, reduce steelmaking costs, and increase economic benefits.
