1. What are the shapes of ferrosilicon?
The shape of ferrosilicon can be divided into spherical, powder and block. Spherical ferrosilicon is made by mixing a certain proportion of silicon, iron, aluminum and other impurities, and its appearance is spherical, while powdered ferrosilicon is crushed into powder form. Natural bulk ferrosilicon is formed by cooling pure ferrosilicon at high temperature. Different shapes of ferrosilicon have different characteristics in application.
2. How does the shape of ferrosilicon affect steel?
Ferrosilicon is a deoxidizer and alloy additive commonly used in iron and steel smelting, and its shape also directly affects its use in smelting. Spherical ferrosilicon is suitable for use in the production process of large iron and steel enterprises, and can be directly put into the furnace to shorten the smelting time and improve production efficiency. Powdered ferrosilicon is suitable for small and medium-sized iron and steel enterprises, with higher utilization rate and less usage. Natural massive ferrosilicon is suitable for the production of high-quality steel. It has high purity, less impurities, and a small amount of addition, which can ensure the purity and quality of steel.
3. How to choose the appropriate shape of ferrosilicon?
Iron and steel production enterprises can determine the required shape of ferrosilicon according to the characteristics of their own production equipment and the variety of steel products. For large-scale enterprises, spherical ferrosilicon can reduce the time and labor cost of aggregates, thereby improving production efficiency; small and medium-sized enterprises can reduce smelting costs by using powdered ferrosilicon. In addition, if the purity of steel is required to be high, natural massive ferrosilicon can be selected.
The selection and application of the shape of ferrosilicon has an important impact on the quality and production efficiency of steel. Under different production conditions, choosing according to demand will help to improve steel performance, reduce production costs, and increase enterprise benefits.
