silicon slag turns waste into treasure

Huatuo Metallurgy is a professional manufacturer of silicon slag with more over ten years of rich experience. In particular, we have opinions in buyers on the selection, usage and applications of the silicon slag. Huatuo Metallurgy will analyse the problem that silicon slag is not silicon fertilizer.

Factually, we have also met many customers who do not understand what is silicon slag. The customers think that the silicon slag is waste to use. But silicon slag is very important metallurgy in the steel making and casting industry. It is still a big difference between silicon slag and silicon waste. It can be said that there is not much similarity.

First, silicon slag is actually the remaining part of the original silicon ore after manual refining. What is important, silicon slag contains a certain amount of silicon element. And silicon slag can be used for recrystallization and purification etc. In addition, it can be used as a steel-making deoxidizer. Because silicon materials are still relatively scarce in China, the price of silicon slag is not cheap. The size of silicon slag is from 10mm to 100mm; the main element of silicon slag includes Si, Ca, S, P and C.

Silicon slag is used for steel slag refining iron, ordinary casting etc. Silicon slag can improve the furnace temperature, increase the fluidity of molten iron, discharge slag effectively, increase the number and improve the toughness and cutting ability of castings. Moreover, stainless steel manufacturers use electric furnace to refine stainless steel process, using silicon slag as reducing agent to improve efficiency and output. Silicon slag is divided into industrial silicon slag, solar silicon slag, semiconductor silicon slag.

Silicon waste is actually a fertilizer that has no value after use or contains almost no silicon and there are many wastes of silicone. It is wrong to treat silicon slag and silicon waste as the same thing. And silicon slag is not silicon waste. Silicon slag also contains a great use value and it is also an indispensable material in the metallurgical industry.
