various applications of silicon carbide

With the development and updated iteration of steelmaking technology, silicon carbide is derived new kind ferroalloy products with carbonization effect. Silicon carbide is produced by Huatuo Metallurgy manufacturer putting carbonizing quartz sand, petroleum coke and wood chips through electric furnace at high temperature. The silicon carbide has high hardness, high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance advantages. Professional silicon carbide manufacturer Huatuo metallurgy will introduce silicon carbide detailed.


What is Silicon Carbide?

The main metallurgy materials of silicon carbide come from quartz sand, wood  chips and petroleum coke and other materials, after raw material is placed in a high-temperature electric furnace, which is heated to a certain temperature and carbonized. The main content of silicon carbide is carbon. Usually, ferroalloy manufacturers are divided into green silicon carbide and black silicon carbide according to content. Among them, the content of green carbonized elements is higher, black silicon carbide is more common, and silicon carbide is used in many industries.

There are many applications in industries.

In the abrasive industry, due to own its wear resistance, silicon carbide can be used in the abrasive industry. Silicon carbide can be used in the manufacturer of bonded abrasives, coated abrasives and free grinding to process glass, ceramics, stone, cast iron and some non-iron metal, carbide, titanium alloy, high speed steel cutter and grinding wheel.

In refractory materials, silicon carbide has high melting point and high temperature resistance. Silicon carbide can be used for slabs in abrasive kiln and ceramic products, and Zinc lining for vertical cylinder distillation furnace, silicon crucibles, small pieces of furnace materials and other silicon carbide ceramic products.

In steelmaking industry, silicon carbide is widely used in steelmaking process. Because silicon carbide contains silicon content inside. It can be decomposed in molten steel and react with oxygen and metal oxides in molten steel to form carbon monoxide and silicon-containing slag. Silicon carbide can be used as a purifying agent for smelting steel, that is to say as deoxidizer for steel making and a cast iron improver.

Therefore, it is necessary to know what is the applications of silicon carbide in any industry. If you have any questions or doubts about silicon carbide, you can consult or send e-mail to Huatuo Metallurgy and we will serve you wholeheartedly.
