the advantages of ferro chrome
Ferro chrome is mainly composed of chromium and iron, Generally, the production way of ferro chrome is divided into the oxygen blowing and solid state decarburization under vacuum. It is the largest applications in the steel making industry. Because the chrome element can improve the properties of the steel effectively. According to the carbon content, ferro chrome can be divided into several types, high carbon ferro chrome carbon content of 4% to 10%, medium carbon ferro chrome carbon content of 0.5% to 4% and low carbon ferro chrome carbon content of 0.15% to 0.5%. And the higher content of high carbon ferro chrome is known as carbon ferro chrome. While low carbon content ferro chrome is called refined ferro chrome. The refined ferro chrome is the most ferro alloy product with chromium content.
★ FeCr has the advantage of increasing the oxidation resistance of steel during steel making.
The FeCr can increase the oxidation resistance of the steel effectively in the steel making process. The chromium element in the FeCr can protect the steel effectively, slow down the oxidation rate and increase the oxidation resistance of the steel and improve the service life of the steel.
★ The certain proportion of FeCr in molten steel has the advantage of improving the corrosion resistance of steel effectively.
In the process of steel making, a certain amount of FeCr can improve the corrosion resistance of the steel effectively. The chromium element in the ferro chrome can adhere to the surface of the steel to provide an insulating layer to resist corrosion.
★ FeCr can improve the hardness and wear resistance of steel.
Generally, the current steel making process incorporates ferro chrome. The main reason is that ferro chrome can improve the hardness and wear resistance of steel. The chromium element in ferro chrome is not easy to combine with oxygen, so it can improve the oxidation resistance of steel greatly. In addition, FeCr can also purify steel impurities to increase the hardness of steel.
