Ferro Silicon

Category Tag


Ferro Silicon offered comprises alloy of iron and silicon having average silicon content between 15 and 90 weight percent and contains a high proportion of iron silicides. It is produced through the reduction of silica/sand with coke in presence of mill scalescrap iron and with a silicon content of about 15%, it finds usage in blast furnaces that are lined with acid fire bricks.


  • Ferrosilicons having higher silicon content find suitability in electric arc furnaces
  • Usual formulations these are made available in include with 15%, 45%, 75%, and 90% silicon
  • Ferrosilicon finds usage as a source of silicon for reducing metals from their oxides
  • Also finds usage for deoxidizing steel as well as other ferrous alloys
  • Supports prevention of loss of carbon from molten steel
  • Used for manufacturing of silicon, high-temperature resistant & corrosion-resistant ferrous silicon alloys as well as silicon steel for use in transformer and electromotor cores
  • In manufacturing cast iron, ferrosilicon finds usage for inoculation of iron to accelerate graphitization
  • It is also used in arc welding and in some electrode coatings
