Composition and Manufacturing Process

High carbon ferro chrome is primarily composed of iron (Fe), chromium (Cr), and carbon (C). It typically contains 60-70% chromium, 6-8% carbon, and the remaining percentage is iron along with trace amounts of other elements.

The manufacturing process involves the reduction of chromite ore (FeCr2O4) in the presence of carbonaceous reducing agents in a submerged arc furnace. The reaction yields molten ferrochrome, which is then solidified into ingots or granules.
