What is Medium Carbon Ferro Manganese?
Ferromanganese is a ferroalloy composed of iron and manganese, which is smelted from manganese ore through blast furnace and electric furnace. Manganese has a density of 7.43 g/cm3, a melting point of 1245°C, and a boiling point of 2150°C. According to the amount of carbon content, ferromanganese can be divided into: low-carbon ferro manganese, medium-carbon ferrom anganese, high-carbon ferro manganese.

Medium Carbon Ferro Manganese Uses
The carbon content of medium carbon ferro manganese is between 1% and 2%. It can be used not only as an alloy additive but also as a deoxidizer and desulfurizer to improve the quality of steel. Therefore, in steel production, medium carbon ferro manganese has a wide range of applications. Below we will introduce in detail the application advantages of medium carbon ferro manganese in the steel industry.
First of all, when medium carbon ferro manganese is used as an alloy additive, it can increase the carbon content and manganese content in steel. Manganese is an important alloying element in steel, which can improve the performance of steel, make steel have good oxidation resistance and wear resistance, and prolong service life. when middle carbon ferro manganese is added to steel, the manganese in it reacts with iron and carbon, forming a compound called hard ferromanganese, and hard ferromanganese, which can increase the hardness and strength of steel, making it more wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant. In the process of steel production, by controlling the additional amount of medium carbon ferro manganese, the carbon content and manganese content of steel can be adjusted to meet the requirements of different materials. For example, in the production of stainless steel, medium carbon ferro manganese is widely used as a manganese increasing agent. A study showed that adding an appropriate amount of medium carbon ferro manganese can significantly increase the tensile strength and hardness of stainless steel.
Secondly, when medium carbon ferro manganese is used as a deoxidizer and desulfurizer, it can reduce production costs and improve steel quality at the same time. As we all know, good steel needs to be deoxidized and desulfurized during the smelting process. As a cheap deoxidizing and desulfurizing agent, medium carbon ferro manganese is indispensable in the steelmaking industry.
When medium carbon ferro manganese is used as a deoxidizer, because manganese and oxygen have a strong affinity and can form stable manganese oxide with oxygen, it can remove oxygen in steel. The use of deoxidizers can prevent the steel from producing pores and inclusions during cooling, and improve the quality and uniformity of the steel. Sulfur is a harmful impurity in steel that reduces the plasticity and toughness of steel. When medium carbon ferro manganese is used as a desulfurizer, the sulfur content in steel can be effectively reduced by adding an appropriate amount of medium carbon ferro manganese.
To sum up, medium carbon ferro manganese has a wide range of application advantages in the steel industry. It can not only be used as an alloy additive to improve the hardness, plasticity, toughness and wear resistance of steel, but also widely used in structural steel, tool steel, stainless steel heat-resistant steel, wear-resistant steel and other alloy steels. It can also be used as a deoxidizer and desulfurizer to reduce production costs and improve production quality. Therefore, the market demand for medium carbon ferro manganese is very large, and the future development prospect is very broad.
