Ferrosilicon 72 is a kind of ferrosilicon with more than 72% silicon element, 72 is to better differentiate its internal silicon element content. Ferrosilicon 72 has higher purity and less impurity content, which can effectively enhance the process and improve product quality in the process of steel making and casting. Different products and processes have different requirements for ferrosilicon 72 in terms of particle size and physicochemical indexes. In order to produce ferrosilicon 72 that can be used in a variety of scenarios, manufacturers crush the freshly smelted ferrosilicon 72 and filter it through a screen to make its particle size more uniform. The advantage of this is that on the one hand, it is easier to pack, transport and store, and on the other hand it is more convenient to use, but of course, many manufacturers provide customized services to meet the needs of different users.

What Is Ferrosilicon 72?

Quartz stone, carbonaceous reductant, steel scrap, and iron scrap are the main raw materials for the production of ferrosilicon 72. To produce high-quality ferrosilicon 72 must be strictly screened raw materials, quartz stone requires low ash and few impurities, which can reduce the impurities of ferrosilicon 72 as much as possible. China is currently a large producer of ferrosilicon 72 and has more ferrosilicon manufacturers in its country. Many manufacturers produce ferrosilicon mainly using electric furnace smelting, by heating the raw material and then using carbonaceous materials such as charcoal and charcoal as reducing agents to reduce and precipitate the silicon in silica from the silica, thus obtaining high-purity elemental silicon.

The shapes of ferrosilicon 72 are mainly in the form of lumps, grains, and powders, etc. Through professional equipment processing, thus crushing and processing the already smelted ferrosilicon 72 into different shapes. In the process of processing, many chips and powders are produced, and by further grinding and processing these chips and powders, and proportioning alloy powder, by using pressing equipment, they are pressed into ferrosilicon 72 briquettes, and calcined using high temperature of 1500 degrees Celsius, so as to effectively reduce the impurities inside them.
