Ferrochrome Wikipedia

OverviewProductionUsage

Ferrochrome production is essentially a carbothermic reduction operation taking place at high temperatures. Chromium ore (an oxide of Cr and Fe) is reduced by coal and coke to form the iron-chromium alloy. The heat for this reaction can come from several forms, but typically from the electric arcformed between the tips of electrodes in the bottom of the furnace and the furnace hearth. This arc creates temperatures of about 2,800 °C (5,070 °F). In the process of smelting,

Ferrochrome an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Medium-carbon ferrochrome is also a product of interest in the foundry industry and in steelmaking plants where refining capacity is limited but low silicon content is desired. Most of the medium-carbon FeCr is produced by the oxygen-converter method. It is based on carbon removal from liquid high-carbon ferrochrome (8% to 9% C, 0.3% to 0.5% Si, 0.04% P) with gaseous
