Ferroalloys are alloys of iron with other elements (chrome, manganese, calcium). Ferroalloys are used for alloying steel and it’s deoxidation, binding of liquid impurities and giving the metal the required structure and properties.

The wide use of ferroalloys in metallurgy is due to their physical and chemical properties - the melting temperature of ferroalloys is lower than the melting point of pure metal, which facilitates its dissolution and leads to a reduction in the fumes of the leading element. Thus, the reduction of the oxides of the leading element of the ferroalloy occurs at a lower temperature, faster, fuller and with lower energy costs.
