Handbook of ferroalloys; theory and technology.


Handbook of ferroalloys; theory and technology.

Ed. by Michael Gasik.



520 pages




This 20-chapter handbook is aimed at students, plant engineers and managers, and researchers in electrometallurgy, mining, and steelmaking and focuses on the core principles and technology involved in processing ferroalloys. Contributors from Europe and South Africa provide background on ferroalloy basics, thermodynamics, the kinetics of reduction and general processing issues, electric furnace operations, environmental issues, and other general topics, followed by the theory and technology of ferroalloys with silicon, manganese, high carbon, and chromium, and minor ferroalloys like ferronickel, tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, niobium, titanium, zirconium, boron, and rare-earth and alkaline-earth metals. Each includes information on the element and its properties, reactions, and equilibria with other major relevant elements, as well as raw materials for it and methods of preparation, smelting techniques, and processing details.
