  • Ferro Chrome

    Ferro-chrome is added to steel to impart properties of hardness, strength and making it stainless. High Carbon Ferro Chrome is most commonly used in specialist applications such as engineering steels. Low-carbon Ferro-Chrome is used during steel production to correct chrome percentages. It is also a low cost alternative to metallic chrome for uses in super alloys and other special melting applications.

  • Recarburizers

    The electric furnace production of cast iron often requires a recarburizing step because the process relies on inexpensive, relatively low carbon scrap as a starting material. High carbon scrap, high carbon ferroalloys or even pig iron are used as sources of carbon but when practice, specifications or economics dictate, specific recarburizers are needed.
    So recarburizer can be used in the casting, which can significantly increase the amount of scrap steel and reduce the consumption of pig iron or even doesn’t use pig iron.

  • Silicon Carbide

    Silicon carbide is used for the de-oxidation and re-carburation of cast iron and steel in foundries. Metallurgical grade Silicon Carbide grain is a unique material for use in the production of iron and steel. It is used in the foundry industry for electric furnace production of gray, ductile, and malleable iron. It is an excellent source of carbon and silicon, promoting nucleation and rendering the iron more responsive to inoculation, deoxidizing the iron, which enhances furnace lining life.
