Deoxidizer commonly used in steelmaking

What are the commonly used deoxidizers for steelmaking? Let's learn.

1. Ferro Silicon

The main components of ferrosilicon are iron and silicon. It is a commonly used deoxidizer for steelmaking and foundry. The chemical affinity between silicon and oxygen is very large, and it can effectively convert oxygen into silicon dioxide. Add a certain amount to steel silicon can effectively improve the strength, hardness and elasticity of steel.

2. Silicon Metal

Metallic silicon is also a commonly used deoxidizing material for steelmaking, which can effectively remove oxygen in molten steel, and reduce the reaction capacity during smelting while deoxidizing, making deoxidation safer!

3. Carbon Ferromanganese (Carbon Ferromanganese)

The main components of ferromanganese are manganese and iron. Ferromanganese is often used as a casting deoxidizer, desulfurizer and alloy additive. Using ferromanganese as a steelmaking material can effectively deoxidize and increase the hardness and durability of steel!

4. Silicon barium alloy

Silicon barium is a new type of multi-element alloy. Its advantage is that the content can be customized, and the internal silicon element can also be customized to make more deoxidation!

5. Silicon slag is the bottom slag produced by smelting ferrosilicon and metallic silicon. 

It still contains a certain amount of silicon. The silicon slag can be used as a deoxidizer for steelmaking, and it can also be purified again to produce ferroalloy products with high silicon content. It can effectively reduce the cost of steelmaking and improve the efficiency of manufacturers and product quality.
