Application of Silicon Slag in Casting Material Production

Silicon slag is a by-product in the production of foundry materials. Silicon slag is used to recover steel slag, pig iron and common castings. It is a commonly used material in the metallurgical industry, which can significantly increase furnace temperature, improve fluidity, effectively discharge iron slag, and improve stability. The product quality is stable and the delivery time is long. Some silicon slag manufacturers begin to process the silicon slag after production. The silicon slag can also be used to recover pig iron from steel slag, and is generally used for casting. The details are as follows:


As we all know, silicon slag generally refers to the part of silicon slag refined by molten slag. It can be used for crystallization and cleaning, steel production, cast iron, casting use and other processes. Silicon slag can be used to recycle pig iron and cast general foundry material steel slag. It can increase furnace temperature and effective fluidity, remove iron slag, increase marks, and improve the toughness and cutting ability of pig iron and cast iron.


Silicon slag, as a by-product in the production of foundry material, can increase furnace temperature, increase iron flow rate, improve slag quality, and increase marks. The silicon slag supplier adopts the refining process of stainless steel electric furnace and uses silicon slag as a reducing agent. The main purpose of silicon slag is to be used as a deoxidizer, industrial silicon refining agent and silicon slag reducing agent, which can reduce costs and increase profits. Some silicon slag containing silicon components can also be used for purification of industrial silicon. Due to the low price, manufacturers including silicon alloy steel raw materials and steel products tend to use silicon slag for its desulfurization performance. The silicon slag contains a large amount of alkaline oxides, which can be mixed with sulfur dioxide to form sulfates, and the slurry can be used for flue gas desulfurization.


There are many kinds of metallurgical materials used in the metallurgical industry. No matter how easy it is to make metallurgical materials, strict procedures must be followed to make some metallurgical materials of higher value.
