Ferro silicon 72 is silver grey ferro alloy and it mainly is used as the inoculant and nodulizers in casting industry and deoxidizer in steel making. ferro silicon 72 is a common model and very popular of ferro silicon. Ferro silicon 72, as an additive to the production process of ferrous metals, will impart several desirable properties on the resultant alloy. Some of the primary benefits of adding ferro silicon 72 to an alloy is to improve the corrosion resistant properties of the new compound. Meanwhile, adding to the high temperature heat-resistance properties of the new alloy, for instance, in the production of silicon steel for use in transformer cores.

The most basic definition of the ferro silicon 72 for sale production process would be that the silica is mixed with coke and then a reduction process takes place in the presence of mill scale, scrap or another source of iron. A blast furnace is employed for ferro silicon production, but for larger contents of silica, an electric arc furnace is used. A large portion of the global ferro silicon suppliers is manufactured in China and India. So Anyang Huatuo Metallurgy Co.,LTD is a professional ferro silicon suppliers with more than 20 years experiences in exporting trade.

There are many practical applications of ferro silicon 72 to include carbon steel and stainless steel production and when using the pidgeon process to produce magnesium from dolomite. Applications in the production of other alloys include the manufacture of silicon steel for electro motors and cores as well as coatings used during arc welding.
