Ferro Silicon Manganese


Ferro silicon manganese alloy is an alloy composed of manganese, silicon, iron and a small amount of carbon and other elements, which is a kind of iron alloy with wide use and large yield. Silicon manganese alloy is a compound deoxidizer commonly used in steelmaking, and ferro silicon manganese is also a reducing agent for the production of medium and low carbon ferro manganese and the production of metallic manganese by electrosilicothermal method.

Ferro Silicon Manganese

What is Ferro Silicon Manganese?

According to the content of two elements, Si and Mn, ferro silicon manganese can be divided into two main grades, ferro silicon manganese 6517#, and ferro silicon manganese 6014#. In order to make ferro silicon manganese more widely used, we provide customized ferro silicon manganese production services to help users use the correct grade of ferro silicon manganese, which significantly reduces users' production costs. Silicon manganese is mainly used in steel making, it is a good deoxidizer and can improve various properties of steel at the same time. Silicon manganese is added to the manganese steel and low-carbon steel that we know well, therefore, ferro silicon manganese is used a lot in steel making.

Manufacturing Process of Ferro Silicon Manganese

The production method of ferro silicon manganese is mainly based on electric heating method, and raw materials need to be prepared before manufacturing. Manganese ore is one of the most important raw materials for producing ferro silicon manganese, in addition to semi coke and quartz stone, which are also important raw materials for ferro silicon manganese. The electric furnace is used to heat the raw materials to form the ferro silicon manganese alloy solution. The semi coke mainly plays a reducing role in the production process, reducing the manganese in the manganese ore and the silicon in the quartz stone, and generating a chemical reaction to form the ferro silicon manganese solution, during the production period, the change of temperature and the time of discharging are strictly controlled, so as to improve the purity and quality of ferro silicon manganese.

Characteristics Of Ferro Silicon Manganese

Silicon manganese is lumpy and has a silvery luster.

Why Choosing Ferro Silicon Manganese?

Manganese and silicon in ferro silicon manganese alloy and oxygen affinity is strong, in the use of ferro silicon manganese alloy in steelmaking, the resulting deoxidation products MnSiO3 and Mn2SiO4 melting point of 1270℃ and 1327℃ respectively, with low melting point, large particles, easy to float, good deoxidation effect and other advantages. Under the same conditions, using manganese or silicon deoxidation alone, the burn loss rate is 46% and 37%, respectively, while using manganese silicon alloy deoxidation, the burn loss rate of both is 29%.

Uses Of Ferro Silicon Manganese

  • Silicon manganese has good deoxidizing effect in steel making.
  • Silicon manganese can improve the toughness and hardness of steel.
  • Silicon manganese is an important raw material for silicon steel and low carbon steel.
  • Silicon manganese improves the inclusions in the steel to reduce impurities and thus improve the purity.
  • Used in the smelting of low carbon ferro manganese.
