Steel Alloy Manufacturing Industry In India

By Expert Author: Bilal Muktinathn

By a perfect mix of aluminium, silicon and carbon, Ferro Alloys are manufactured. By checking thoroughly, the purest form of Ferro silicon is delivered by the balance of all the mentioned elements. By combining iron and 15% to 90% of silicon, Ferro Silicon an alloy is produced. Besides being used as a bud or sprout in the moulding industry, Ferro silicon or FeSi, is widely used in colour or non-colour metallurgy industry as an important deoxidizing material. It is principally used as a deoxidizing material in steel alloy manufacturing industries, in the structure of nouvelle alloy steel, developing metallic structure and granulation in the moulding of alloy and non-alloy cast irons, refurbishment of other Ferro alloys and most importantly in producing cast iron and steel.

Ferro Silicon specifications:

• Silicon(Si) : 70-75%

• Aluminium(AI) : 2% Max

• Carbon (C) : 0.15% Max

• Sulphur(S) : 0.05% Max

• Phosphorus(P) : 0.05% Max


• Melting Point : 1200.C – 1250.C

• Boiling Point : 2355.C


Ferro Silicon is used for:

• Making steel and foundries as a source of silicon in production of carbon steels, other Ferro alloys for its deoxidizing properties and stainless steel

• Utilized in manufacturing silicon steel for transformer cores and electro-motors

• Inoculation of the iron

• Preventing loss of carbon from the molten iron

• Electrode coatings in arc welding


• In steel making, Ferro Silicon is mainly used as an important deoxidizer

• Used as alloy elements joint agent, that are generally used in electrician silicon-steel, non-ferrous metal, steels, low bearing steels and heat-resistant alloy steel

• Normally used as the main reductant in the chemical industry and Ferro alloy production

• Used as inoculators and modulizer in the iron industry

Around 5.15 Million Tonnes is the industry’s present capacity. The products covered are:

 Manganese Alloys (Silico Manganese, MC, HC and LC Ferro Manganese)

 Ferro Silicon, Chrome Alloys (Charge Chrome, MC, HC, LC Ferro Chrome and Silico Chrome)

 Noble Ferro Alloys (Ferro Titanium, Ferro Boron, Ferro Molybdenum, Ferro Tungsten, Ferro Vanadium, etc)

Used for the production of ductile iron, Ferro silicon is a basis for manufacture of prealloys like magnesium (MgFeSi). Small amounts of rare earth metals and 3-42% magnesium create MgFeSi. By a patented hydrometallurgical process, a very pure silicon metal is also produced. By treatment in an iron chloride solution followed by a further purification process, this process removes the impurities in high silicon.

Thus, the Ferro Alloys Industry, considered to be a vital industry, needs to be encouraged. It is envisaged that the Industry should produce larger quantities of basic alloys, which are required for the growth of the Steel Industry at home and also to cater to the international market.

Ferro alloys supplier India can compete with any country since it has a great future. Supported by skilled labour force and experienced technical personnel, India has an advantage. Provided new cost-effective product mix is frequented at, innovations that are made in the process technology and plant equipment design, the prospects for the Ferro Silicon Manufacturer India and Ferro-alloy industry to grow seem quite immense.


Bilal Muktinathn, a Ferro Alloys Exporter Kolkata is also renowned name in the business of Ferro alloys in India. According this industry is going to be very promising.
