The Practicality of Metallic Silicon

Aug. 28, 2020

When talking about metallurgical materials, we need to mention metallic silicon. There are many aspects to using this material in industry. Its good performance meets the requirements of many processing procedures for metallurgical materials. Its main functions:

Non ferrous alloy additive. Silicon metal is a product made by smelting coke and coke in an electric furnace. The main component of silicon is about 98%, and the remaining impurities are iron, aluminum, calcium and so on.

Metallic silicon, also known as industrial silicon, is a trade name that appeared in the mid-1960s. Its appearance is related to the rise of the semiconductor industry. The usual practice is to divide commercial silicon into metal silicon and semiconductor silicon. At the same time, semiconductor silicon is used to produce high-purity metal silicon for semiconductor devices, which is better used in industry, especially in the steel smelting process.

The actual effect of metal silicon is still very good, which is one of the reasons why it is popular with consumers. At present, the utilization rate of this material in my country is continuously increasing, indicating that this material has a good development prospect. In the future, metallic silicon, a product made from coke smelted in time and electric furnace, will be used in many industrial fields.

Metallic Silicon

There are many kinds of metal silicon, mainly divided into green silicon carbide and black silicon carbide. According to the physical state, metal silicon can be divided into silicon carbide blocks, silicon carbide balls, metal silicon powder and so on. Silicon metal is a new type of material, which has attracted more and more attention due to its superior performance. What is the function of silicon metal?

1. Application in building material ceramics and grinding wheel industry. Using its thermal conductivity, thermal radiation and high thermal strength to manufacture sheet kiln furniture can not only reduce the production capacity of kiln furniture, but also improve the production capacity and product quality of the kiln, shorten the production cycle, and is ideal for ceramic glaze firing and sintering Indirect material.

2. The application in the iron and steel industry makes use of the corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance, wear resistance, and good thermal conductivity of metal silicon to improve the service life of large blast furnace linings.

3. In the application of metallurgical beneficiation industry, the hardness of metallic silicon is second only to diamond, and it has strong wear resistance. It is an ideal material for the lining of wear-resistant pipelines, impellers, pump chambers, cyclones and ore funnels. Its wear resistance is 5-20 times the service life of cast iron and rubber.

Through the introduction of the above information, we can clearly understand that metal silicon not only can be divided into multiple types, but also has multiple functions and can be used in different fields.
