Silicon manganese 6517
Manganese and silicon are the main alloy elements used in carbon steel. Silicon manganese 6517 is one of the most important deoxidizing agents in steelmaking.Because the oxygen product produced by deoxidizing with manganese has a low melting point and is easy to float.Manganese can also increase the deoxidization effect of strong deoxidizers such as silicon and aluminum.All industrial steels need to add a small amount of manganese as desulfurizer so that the steels can conduct hot rolling, forging and other processes without breaking. Manganese is also the most important alloy element in all kinds of steels. In alloy steels, more than 15% of manganese is added to increase the structural strength of steel.Silicon is the most important alloy element in pig iron and carbon steel next to manganese.In steel production, silicon is mainly used as a deoxidizer for molten metals, or as an alloy additive to increase the strength and performance of steel.Silicon is also an effective stone grinding medium, which can change the carbon in cast iron into free stone grinding carbon.The silicon in standard gray cast iron and ductile cast iron can be up to 4%.A great deal of manganese and silicon is added to the liquid steel in the form of ferro-alloys: ferromanganese, silico-manganese and ferro-silicon.
