Metallurgical silicon powder
Metallurgical silicon powder is a type of silicon powder primarily used in the metallurgical industry to produce various alloys, such as aluminum-silicon alloys, silicon-steel alloys, and ferroalloys. It is made by reducing high-purity quartz with carbon in an electric furnace, producing a product typically 98-99% pure silicon. Metallurgical silicon powder has several desirable properties that make it well-suited for use in the production of alloys. It is a good reducing agent, meaning it can remove oxygen from metal oxides, which is important in producing many alloys. It is also a good deoxidizer, which means it can remove excess oxygen from molten metal, preventing the formation of defects in the final product. In addition, metallurgical silicon powder is a good source of silicon, an important element in many alloys. Metallurgical silicon powder is sold in various particle sizes, from very fine powders to larger granules. The particle size distribution can be tailored to meet specific customer requirements. It is also available in different grades, depending on the intended application. Fine silicon powder has been used as a raw material for producing high value-added high, melting point powders such as SiC and Si3N4, medical treatment materials, catalysts, electromagnetic components for various devices, and solar cells. Si3N4 powder has excellent hardness, creep strength, oxidation resistance, and thermochemical stability. Thus, it has been extensively used as a raw material for high-performance tools, ball bearings, turbocharger parts, and other products.
