Third-Party Testing With McCreath Laboratories
Manufacturers create ferrosilicon (FeSi) by reducing quartz. When combined with coal and iron or other ores at high temperatures, this reduction produces an iron and silicon alloy.
The steel production and casting industries use FeSi to improve a material’s hardness and deoxidizing properties. Often, ferrosilicon increases iron and steel products’ strength and quality. Because the alloy promotes these characteristics, manufacturers use it to make nodularisers and inoculants. Ferrosilicon provides stainless, carbon and alloy steels with metallurgical properties.

How We Perform Our Ferrosilicon Sampling Service
When you choose to work with us, you’ll receive expertise from one of the most accredited labs in the country. We’ve been in the sample analysis industry for more than 140 years, so you can rely on our expert laboratory services for unbiased results and sampling accuracy.
We use high-quality equipment and techniques that meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) standards to perform a thorough ferrosilicon analysis. We will test each element in your sample with the best methods for those materials. We complete our ferrosilicon sampling service with three techniques to determine whether your alloy is genuine:
- Gravimetric Testing
- Inductively coupled plasma (ICP) analysis
As leading industry experts, we will provide efficient services that you can trust, giving you peace of mind. Our team of chemists, engineers and industry professionals can also perform accurate consulting services and comprehensive inspections.Ferro Silicon Sample Submission Form
Ferro Silicon Testing Methods
At McCreath Laboratories, we prioritize accurate, accessible sampling and analysis. We have eight different locations across the country, and our team can travel to your site to collect a representative sample. Our mobile crushing units allow us to minimize samples taken off site to our laboratories for analysis.
You can also submit an online sample form to begin your ferrosilicon sample analysis or reach out to us with questions about our services or sampling processes. Our team values your needs, so share yours with us today.
