Ferrosilicon is an iron alloy composed of iron and silicon. Ferrosilicon is an iron-silicon alloy made from coke, steel shavings, quartz (or silica) and smelted in an electric furnace. Since silicon and oxygen can be easily synthesized into silica, ferrosilicon is often used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking, and since SiO2 generates a large amount of heat during deoxidization, it is also advantageous to increase the temperature of molten steel. At the same time, ferrosilicon can also be used as an alloying element additive, widely used in low-alloy structural steels, spring steels, bearing steels, heat-resistant steels, and electrical silicon steels. Ferrosilicon is often used as a reducing agent in ferroalloy production and chemical industries.
