the role of silicon carbon alloy in the steel-making
Silicon carbon alloy is very popular recently and many steel manufacturers are purchasing always. However, few people know the key status of silicon carbon alloy in steel making, so this creates difficulties and waste when using silicon carbon alloy. Today, Anyang Huatuo Metallurgy, as professional silicon carbon alloy manufacturer, will tell you the role of silicon carbon alloy in the steel making.
First, silicon carbon alloy has the effect of eliminating molten steel oxides and improve the purity of molten steel.
In the process of steel-making, the molten steel need to add oxygen, the purpose is to mix the impurity elements in the molten steel with oxygen to form oxides so as to increase the purity of the molten steel. But this will cause the problem that the oxide is difficult to be filtered. The steel making manufacturer usually put the silicon carbon alloy into the molten steel, because the silicon carbon alloy has the function of collecting slag agent which can adsorb the oxide in the molten steel effectively and facilitate filtration. Moreover silicon carbon alloy has the role of improving molten steel purity.
Second, silicon carbon alloy has the effect of deoxidizing molten steel.
Oxygen in molten steel often causes the problem of low hardness of steel. Therefore, deoxidation is an important process for the oxygen in molten steel. The effect and degree of deoxidation directly affect the steel quality. In the process of steel-making, silicon carbon alloy can effectively deoxidize the molten steel, improve the hardness and quality of the steel. So, silicon carbon alloy has the function of deoxidizing agent.
Third, silicon carbon alloy has the effect of increasing the temperature of the smelting furnace.
Silicon carbon alloy has high temperature resistance characteristics. The silicon carbon alloy is placed in the steel-making process, which can raise the temperature of the smelting furnace effectively, make the elemental reaction of the molten steel more thorough and improve the steel yield and reduce waste.
Finally, silicon carbon alloy has the effect of reducing the reaction of molten steel.
Silicon carbon alloy is very friendly in molten steel, so adding silicon carbon alloy into the steel-making can reduce the reaction effectively, which plays a role in preventing splashing, reducing dust and ensuring the safety of workers.
