Deoxidize steel: Ferrosilicon is used in deoxidizing steel as well as other ferrous alloys. This helps to prevent loss of carbon from molten steel.
Other alloys: Ferrosilicon is also used in the manufacturing of other ferroalloys.
Heavy media separation: Ferrosilicon is widely used in the metallurgical industry for the processes of atomisation, melting and heavy media separation reactions.
Pre-alloys: Ferrosilicon is used in the manufacturing of pre-alloys such as Magnesium ferrosilicon and other.
Arc-welding: Electrode coating for arc welding is often done by using Ferrosilicon as one of the components.
Electric industry: The electric industry uses Ferrosilicon as a source of pure silicon.
Silicon copper: The chemical industry requires the use of Ferrosilicon for the manufacturing of silicon copper.
Pidgeon process: The Pidgeon process is a method for magnesium metal production, by means of silicothermic reduction. Ferrosilicon is used as a source of silicon for this process. .
