Ferroboron (FeB), an alloy consisting of iron and boron. The metal usually contains 17.5% to 20% boron and is used to produce boron steels. It is manufactured either by carbothermic reduction of boric acid in an electric arc furnace together with carbon steel, or by the aluminothermic reduction of boric acid in the presence of iron.
For a complete listing of ferroboron specifications, see ASTM A323.
Send McCreath Labs Your SampleContact Us Today
McCreath Laboratories will send trained, experienced technicians to take a represented sample for you. Whether in bulk or containers, our technicians have the training, tools and experience to collect a representative sample, ensuring that all subsequent laboratory testing is accurate and reliable. With our mobile crushing units, Ferroboron in lump form can be partially processed on site per the ISO and ASTM standards, increasing efficiency and reducing the amount of material taken off-site.
The Professionals at McCreath Labs
McCreath Laboratories will employ both classical and advanced in-house techniques in the analysis of Ferroboron. The techniques have been verified through the use of certified reference materials and some are adopted directly from ASTM or ISO standards. A typical ferroboron analysis would be done as follows:
|C||Combustion||LECO CS 744||ASTM E1019|
|Al||ICP||Thermo ICAP||In house|
