More Details About The Product


Ferro Silicon Magnesium Alloys are master alloys of Magnesium with Iron and Silicon. They facilitate small additions of Magnesium to Iron, required to transform graphite flakes to spheroids.

Our Ferro silicon magnesium are produced in induction furnaces and cast in permanent moulds, to give homogeneity. We can offer the right alloy with controlled amounts of Ca and TRE, to reduce the severity of reaction and to improve magnesium recovery. All alloys are analysed with the help of X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer to ensure consistent quality.

Ferro silicon magnesium offered by us produces high quality nodulising agents. These ferro silicon magnesium find wide application in production of SG Iron & specialty grey iron castings for the automobile industry. The use of ferro silicon magnesium also provide number of distinct advantages in nodularisation of ductile iron.

The total world reserve of manganese ore is approximately 570 million tons of metal content which is unevenly distributed. Reserves are located in south Africa (26%), Ukraine 25%, Australia 17%. Brazil and India 9% each. Only a small fraction of global manganese reserve is clearly economic.

The silicothermic process seems to be the most preferable technique for producing ferrosilicon magnesium. The aim of this study is to investigate the different parameters controlling the ferrosilicon magnesium alloy production by the silicothermic process and to investigate a technique for the production process by the immersion of magnesium metal in molten ferrosilicon

Ferro Sillicon Magnesium Alloys are master alloys of magnesium with Iron And Silicon. They facilitate small additions of Mahnesium ti iron, required to transform graphite flakes to superoids.

These include:

  • Higher quality castings through maximum nucleation
  • Improved graphic nodularity
  • Fewer as-cast carbides in thin section castings for improved machine-ability
  • Reduced heat treatment costs
  • Precise control of rare earth levels with single alloy addition
  • Higher levels of ferrite & lower hardness for given composition and section sizes
  • Greater tolerance to slightly higher level of pearlite promoting residual elements. Magnesium from dolomite can be made in the Pidgeon process with the use of Ferro silicon.
It can also be used in the production of carbon steel, silicon steel and stainless steel.

It is used in metallurgical industry for different processes and reactions.

Electric industry buys this ferro alloy to use it as a source of pure silicon.
