Calcium Silicide - Methods of production and their technological consideration

Akerkar, D D and Vaish, A K and Dhanjal, S S and Rao, G N (1983) Calcium Silicide - Methods of production and their technological consideration. In: Proceedings of the Seminar on Problems and Prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry in India, Oct. 24-26, 1983, NML, Jamshedpur.



Three industrial methods of production of calcium silicide have been discussed with their merits and demerits along with technological considerations. Calcium silicide was produced at NML in 500 KVA submerged arc furnace using partial charging method. Based on the results and observations of the smelting trials carried out a model has been proposed to explain the mechanism of form-ation of calcium silicide. Inoculation trials with calcium silicide produced at NML compares favourably with those obtained from abroad.
