What is ferro chrome

Ferrochromium, as its name suggests, is a ferro alloy with chromium and ferro as its main components. It usually contains 50% to 70% chromium. Mainly used in the steel industry.

Ferrochrome

In addition to the main components of chromium and iron, it also contains impurities such as carbon, silicon, sulfur, and phosphorus. In actual use, people classify them according to their carbon content.

The classification is as follows:

  • High carbon ferrochrome: 4% to 10% C
  • Medium carbon ferrochrome: 0.5% to 4% C
  • Low carbon ferrochrome: >0.15%~0.5%C
  • Micro-carbon ferrochrome: ≤0.15%C

Low Carbon Ferro Chrome is produced by reducing chrome ore with Ferro Silicon Chromium. Usually the chromium content is at least 60%. The carbon content sometimes varies from 0.03% to 0.15%.

High carbon ferrochrome with high chromium content. It is produced using a higher grade chrome ore.

Ferrochrome uses

1. Most of the ferrochrome produced worldwide is used in manufacturing stainless steel.

Stainless steel depends on chromium for its appearance and its resistance to corrosion. Around 18% of chrome is used in per unit content of stainless steel.

2. Foundry-grade ferrochrome containing around 62-66% chromium and almost 5% carbon is used for producing cast irons.

3. High carbon ferrochrome is used in the manufacturing of ball-bearing steels, tool steels as well as other alloy steels.

4. Ferrochrome is also used when more chromium is needed to be added to carbon steel.

5. Apart from making stainless steel, low carbon ferrochrome is also used in the manufacturing of acid-resistant steels.
