It has been briefly summarized above. Silicon metal is mainly used as an additive for non-ferrous alloys, and the main component is silicon. Because of this, its use is nothing more than the following:
1. Metallurgical beneficiation. The hardness of silicon metal is quite high, not much worse than diamond. In addition, silicon metal has very high wear resistance. It is an ideal material for wear-resistant pipes, impellers, pump chambers, cyclones, and mine bucket linings. Its wear resistance is very high, 5-20 times the service life of cast iron, rubber, etc.
2. The steel industry. Because silicon metal has strong corrosion resistance, high impact resistance, and good wear resistance. Another very important thing is that silicon metal has good thermal conductivity. Therefore, many large blast furnaces also use silicon metal as lining. Can greatly increase its service life.
3. Ceramic building materials. We can make use of the characteristics of silicon metal thermal conductivity, heat radiation, high thermal intensity, and make thin-plate kiln furniture. This can not only reduce the capacity of the kiln furniture, but also increase the capacity and product quality of the kiln, and shorten the production cycle. Ideal raw material for ceramic glaze.
In addition to the silicon metal used in the above three places, silicon metal is also used in the grinding wheel industry. The principle is similar to that of ceramic building materials.
