Ferrochrome is used in the making of special types of steel, more
extensively used for stainless steel is an alloy of iron and chromium.
It is divided into two main types according to the carbon contents of
the products i.e. High Carbon Ferrochrome (HCFC) and Low Carbon
Chromium is added as ferrochrome in various types of steel to increase
hardening, wire resistance to corrosion and stability at high operating
temperatures. Its corrosion resistant properties become very much marked
when the chromium content exceeds 12% in low carbon steels. Since
addition of other elements such as nickel, increase resistance to non
oxidizing acids, improves ductility and gives cold working properties.
This is essential for the production of stainless steel and cast iron.
Consumption of charge chrome or HCFC has been fairly successful although
the demand for LCFC is going down not only in the country but also
throughout the world.
so, plzzzzz thanks for my answer.
