Production

Atomised Ferro Silicon 15% is a specialised powder product formed by melting Ferro Silicon 75% with steel scrap, in an induction furnace and pouring the stream of liquid metal into high-pressure water jets.

Key Properties of Atomised Ferro Silicon 15%

The principal properties of our Atomised FeSi 15% are magnetism, corrosion resistance, sphericity and density. Note with our unique atomiser, we produce a water atomised product with excellent sphericity and corrosion resistant properties.

Uses

Atomised Ferro Silicon 15% is used in Heavy Media Separation (aka ‘Dense Media Separation’ or ‘DMS’ or ‘Sink/Float’ Plants) used in the mining and scrap processing industries. Heavy medium separation is a gravity separation technique which creates a medium with a specific density. This medium allows lights to float and heavies to sink, thus permitting separation due to density. Whether this be particular ores from gangue in mining or non ferrous metals in the scrap industry, it is generally used in plants with a cutting density of above 3g/c㎥.
