Ferrosilicon Laboratory Testing Services

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.

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.
