Low carbon ferro manganese is a ferroalloy with high manganese content. It enhances the strength of steel and is used in the manufacture of high-tensile steel; widely used in the manufacture of tool steel, alloy steel, and structural steel.
Medium and Low Carbon Ferro Manganese
Ferro manganese is a ferroalloy with a higher manganese content; it is formed by heating a mixture of Fe2O3 and MnO2 oxides and carbon (usually coke and coal in an electric arc or blast furnace). In the furnace, the oxides undergo carbothermic reduction, resulting in ferro mangan, which is used as a deoxidizer for steel. Smelting high-grade manganese ore with high-carbon ferro manganese to obtain medium-carbon ferro manganese. Low-carbon ferro manganese is obtained by silicothermic reduction of manganese ore in an electric furnace.
Low-carbon Ferro manganese is a ferroalloy with high manganese content. It enhances the strength of steel and is used in the manufacture of high-tensile steel; widely used in the manufacture of tool steel, alloy steel, and structural steel. Its properties give it a high affinity for sulfur in steel and when combined produces manganese sulfide (MnS) which floats on the metal surface. It is also used as a deoxidizer, thus finding its use in the manufacture of 18-8 austenitic non-magnetic stainless steels.
The Role of Ferro Manganese
The main function of low-carbon ferromanganese is to improve the properties of steel and alloy, and it is an essential raw material for the manufacture of stainless steel. Ferro manganese alloy lump is used in the iron and steel industry, while Ferro Manganese powder is used in the welding industry. FeMn can counteract the negative effects of sulfur. It acts as a deoxidizer and desulfurizer. The ferromanganese was added to the molten steel to improve the high-temperature resistance of the product. It also imparts the following metallurgical properties: Strength, Hardness, and Toughness.
Specifications of Low Carbon Ferro manganese
According to the carbon content, ferro mangan can be divided into carbon ferro manganese, low carbon ferro manganese, medium carbon ferro manganese, and high carbon ferro manganese. Among them, the carbon content of micro-carbon ferro manganese does not exceed 0.15%; the carbon content of low-carbon ferro manganese is between 0.15% and 0.7%; the carbon content of medium-carbon ferro manganese is between 0.7% and 2.0%; high The carbon content of carbon ferro manganese is between 2.0% and 8.0%. The following are general specifications for low carbon ferro manganese：

Price of Ferro Manganese
The price of ferromanganese increases as the carbon content decreases, the lower the carbon content, the higher the price of ferro manganese. The recent price of low carbon ferro manganese is around 11400-11600 RMB/T. And according to official data, the price of ferro manganese is going up.
