Silicon Calcium Alloy As Deoxidizer For Steel Making

Silicon calcium alloy is commonly used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking because it has several beneficial properties.

Deoxidizers are added to steel during the steelmaking process to remove oxygen and other impurities, which can negatively impact the quality of the final product.

Here are some reasons why silicon calcium alloy is a good deoxidizer:

  1. High affinity for oxygen: Silicon calcium alloy has a high affinity for oxygen, which means it readily reacts with oxygen to form oxides. This helps to remove oxygen from the steel and prevent the formation of unwanted oxides.
  2. Low melting point: Silicon calcium alloy has a low melting point, which makes it easy to add to the steelmaking process. It also helps to reduce the energy required for the steelmaking process.
  3. Cost-effective: Silicon calcium alloy is a cost-effective deoxidizer compared to other materials such as aluminum and ferrosilicon.
  4. Improves steel properties: Silicon calcium alloy can also improve the properties of steel, such as increasing its strength, ductility, and toughness.
  5. Reduces inclusion formation: Silicon calcium alloy can also help to reduce the formation of inclusions, which are non-metallic particles in the steel that can affect its properties.

I inquired about 3 suppliers of ferro-titanium, and finally chose to cooperate with Zhen'an. FeTitanium 70 with an order quantity of 20 tons, after inspection, the quality of ferro-titanium is not bad, and the price is very advantageous. Reliable Chinese!

Ms. Acallari


We use calcium silicate cored wire in our power transmission and distribution systems, and the conductivity and durability of the product is excellent, which perfectly meets our needs.Please continue to maintain such product quality!
