Ferrochrome Silicon Laboratory Testing Services

Sampling Verifications

Ferrochrome silicon (FeCrSi) is an alloy of silicon, iron and chrome. During the production process, equal amounts of silica and ore undergo a smelting process, which creates the alloy. Reducing silica to silicon requires a great deal of energy, and this smelting process consumes 7,6000 kilowatt-hours of energy per ton of product. FeCrSi should contain 38% to 42% and 0.1% carbon.

Manufacturers can use ferrochrome silicon as a deoxidizer in stainless steel production and as an intermediate material in low-carbon ferrochromium production.
