Ferro Alloys

Ferro alloy refers to various alloys of iron with a high proportion of one or more other elements such as manganese, aluminium or silicon. They are used in the production of steels and alloys. Ferro alloys produced by us are used as raw materials for the manufacture of stainless steel products. We also sell specialised ferro alloys - low and medium carbon - for special steel applications. We sell ferro alloys of various grades, a finished product to steel companies primarily in the states of Odisha, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan.

We also export ferro alloys to South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom.

Ferro Manganese

Ferro manganese, when added during the steel-making process, helps in lowering the melting point of steel. It is made by heating the mixture of manganese oxide and ferric oxide with carbon in a blast or electric arc furnace.

Silicon Manganese

Silico manganese is used as a de-oxidant, sulfide former and alloying element in the steel industry, or in the production of other manganese alloys. In the case of stainless steel, it is also used to substitute expensive nickel in some austenitic grades. It is produced from manganese-rich slag - a by-product from ferro manganese production. Silico-manganese accounts for over 75% of Indian manganese alloy exports followed by ferro-manganese and other manganese based alloys.

Ferro Chrome

We also undertake conversion of hot rolled coils to pipes, chrome ore to ferro chrome and manganese ore to silico manganese for an Indian steel conglomerate.

Majority of the ferro chrome alloys are used in stainless steel production. The average chrome content in stainless steel is 16-18%.

These are also used to manufacture carbon steel and special alloy steel.

Ferro Chrome has varied applications such as in the manufacturing of carbon steel (ammunition, drills, hand tools, mobile cranes and mining equipment), stainless steel and also in the foundry industry.
