Iron foundries melt iron ore, iron scrap, & steel scrap, in a high temperature furnace to produce molten iron. Impurities from the molten iron must be removed from the slag produced during the melting process. Silicon Carbide is an important metallurgical additive as Silicon & Carbon combine with impurities in the molten metal slag removing contaminants & increasing Iron yield. Silicon Carbide releases metal oxides trapped in the slag producing additional energy to expedite the melting process. Silicon Carbide enhances the metallurgical properties for all grades of Iron.
