Silicon carbide is now being increasingly demanded by major steel mills and foundries. Because its price is cheaper than ferrosilicon, many foundries choose to use silicon carbide instead of ferrosilicon to increase silicon and increase carbon, and silicon carbide can also be used It is made into various required shapes, such as silicon carbide balls and silicon carbide powder, etc., with low cost and good effect, so it is a very popular product.
Silicon carbide ball deoxidizer is especially suitable for silicon increase and deoxidation in ladle. It is the best auxiliary material for cast iron/cast steel deoxidizer. It has better effect than conventional particle size deoxidizer and is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly. It can be used in smelting and casting. Completely replace ferrosilicon, greatly reduce the cost of cast steel, and improve corporate efficiency. Common specifications are around 10--50mm.
With the rapid development of the steelmaking process, the demand for silicon carbide generally increases, and the final absorption rate has also been greatly improved. Therefore, when steel plants choose silicon carbide, they will not be the same as before. The content must be Very high silicon carbide can achieve the required absorption rate. Now the most used by steel mills are 65 silicon carbide and 70 silicon carbide. These two types of silicon carbide are cheap and the absorption rate is acceptable. It saves a lot of costs and is a product with relatively high economic benefits, and it is also a preferred product for steel mills.
Therefore, when steel mills finally choose silicon carbide, they will also comprehensively consider silicon carbide with higher economic benefits based on various factors such as price, market conditions, and effects, and will not blindly choose silicon carbide.
