Low-carbon ferrochrome

The low-carbon ferrochrome supplied by Anyang Lishi Industry Co., Ltd includes ferrochrome. It is used as an alloy of chromium and iron, between 50% and 70% chromium, and is offered as an important iron-niobium alloy, with 60-70% niobium. In addition, it is used as a major source of niobium alloying for high-strength low-alloy steels.

Low carbon ferroalloys are used for deoxidation of steel and for introducing alloying elements into steel during steelmaking. Steel properties (mechanics, connections, etc.) are improved by adding special ferroalloys during steel production.

1. Widely used in foundry and steel industry

2. Has the best chemical and physical properties

3. Find use for correcting chromium percentages without undesirable changes in carbon/trace element percentages during steel production

Ferrochromium is also suitable as a low-cost substitute for metallic chromium for superalloys and other specialty smelting.

It is an iron alloy with a high manganese content. It imparts strength to steel and is used to make high-strength steel. Low carbon ferromanganese is widely used in the manufacture of tool steel, alloy steel and structural steel. Its properties give it a high affinity for sulfur in steel, which when combined produces manganese (MN) floating on the metal surface. Low carbon ferromanganese is used as a deoxidizer, so it can be used to make 18-8 austenitic non-magnetic stainless steel.

Low ferrochromium is an alloy of chromium and iron that contains 50% – 70% chromium by weight. The ferrochromium manufacturing process is primarily carried out by carbothermal reduction of chromite ore in an electric submerged arc furnace (SAF). In modern industry, one of the primary uses of ferrochrome is in producing stainless steel as it imparts strength and durability. The global low chromium ferry market is growing significantly in developing countries such as China, India, South Africa, Brazil, and Indonesia owing to their high demand for stainless and other alloy steels in the construction industry.

The low-chromium market is increasingly consolidating, with several major producers leading the global ferrochromium production. At the same time, the high production reserves of raw materials such as South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Kazakhstan metallurgical chromite also provide the impetus for the global ferrochrome market. Finally, the increasing use of stainless steel worldwide in various end-user industries such as construction and automotive is expected to be one of the major factors driving the global ferrochrome market forward throughout the forecast period.
