What is low carbon Ferrochrome uses ?


Low carbon ferrochrome is widely used in stainless steel manufacturing. Stainless steel is an alloy material in which chromium is one of its main alloying elements. Low carbon ferrochromium is an iron alloy containing lower carbon content and higher chromium content, usually containing 15% to 30% chromium.

 

In stainless steel manufacturing, low carbon ferrochrome is mainly used to increase the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. The presence of chromium can form a dense chromium oxide film to prevent direct contact between oxygen and the metal surface, thereby preventing further oxidation and corrosion of the metal. In addition, chromium can also increase the hardness and strength of stainless steel and improve its mechanical properties.

LC FerroChrome

1. Improve the wear resistance of stainless steel:

Chromium can improve the hardenability, hardness and wear resistance of steel, while low carbon ferrochrome contains sufficient chromium and low carbon content, so it can be effectively used in the stainless steel manufacturing process. Improve its wear resistance.

 

2. Enhance the hardness of stainless steel:

The carbon content of low-carbon ferrochromium is usually 0.5%, and this ingredient can increase the hardness of steel, so it is an important additive for manufacturing stainless steel that requires high hardness.

3. Reduce the brittleness of stainless steel:

Chromium forms a variety of carbides and intermetallic compounds in steel, which can improve the strength and hardness of steel, but also affects the brittle transition temperature and electrical conductivity of steel. Therefore, the addition of low-carbon ferrochromium It can effectively reduce the brittleness of stainless steel and improve its toughness.

 

4. Improve the oxidation resistance of stainless steel:

Low-carbon ferrochrome contains an appropriate amount of chromium elements, which can form a dense oxide layer with oxygen in the air, thereby reducing the oxidation rate of stainless steel and improving its oxidation resistance.

 

5. Improve the corrosion resistance of stainless steel:

Chromium can improve the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, and low-carbon ferrochromium contains enough chromium. Therefore, in stainless steel manufacturing, the addition of low-carbon ferrochromium can effectively improve the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.

In addition, the application of low-carbon ferrochrome can also help improve the processing performance of stainless steel, reduce the thermal expansion coefficient of stainless steel, and improve the thermal stability of stainless steel. In the production of low-carbon ferrochromium, common production methods include high-carbon ferrochromium refining method and electrosilicothermal method, among which oxygen blowing low-carbon ferrochromium has great advantages.

 

In short, low-carbon ferrochrome is widely used in stainless steel manufacturing. It can not only improve various properties of stainless steel, but also improve its processing performance and thermal properties, which is of great significance for improving the comprehensive performance of stainless steel.
