Many previous articles have talked about the plasticity and multifunctional applications of silicon carbide. In the industrial field, silicon carbide also has an important application form, that is, silicon carbide balls. Today we will explore the nature and application of silicon carbide balls.

Introduction to Silicon Carbide Balls

We all know that silicon carbide (SiC) is an inorganic substance formed by the high-temperature reaction of carbon and silicon elements. It has extremely high hardness, melting point, chemical stability and corrosion resistance. Silicon carbide balls are composite materials pressed from silicon carbide powder or silicon carbide particles. Therefore, the main component of silicon carbide balls is silicon carbide.

Characteristics of Silicon Carbide Balls

As a ceramic material formed by thermal combination of carbon and silicon elements, silicon carbide balls have the following main characteristics:


Physical Characteristics

Crystal structure

The crystal structure of silicon carbide balls is hexagonal


High hardness

The hardness of silicon carbide balls is more than 5 times that of traditional metal materials

 High melting point

 The melting point reaches about 2780℃, so it can withstand high temperature environments

Corrosion resistance

Silicon carbide balls have good acid and alkali resistance and can operate stably for a long time in strong acid and alkali environments


 Chemical Characteristics

High chemical stability

 It has a certain resistance to most acids, alkalis and solvents

High antioxidant ability

 Good oxidation resistance ensures the stability of its long-term performance

Main Applications of Silicon Carbide Balls

Silicon carbide balls inherit many excellent properties of silicon carbide, such as high hardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance. This makes silicon carbide balls widely used in many industrial fields

Silicon carbide balls are one of the main materials for the construction of high-temperature furnaces. They can be used to make the furnace walls, furnace bottoms, furnace linings and other parts of high-temperature furnaces, and withstand corrosion and thermal shock in high-temperature environments.

In semiconductor manufacturing, silicon carbide balls are widely used to make polycrystalline silicon grains because of their excellent thermal conductivity and electrical insulation.

Silicon carbide balls are also used to manufacture high-temperature reactors and pipelines in the chemical and petroleum industries, and can withstand harsh environments such as high temperatures and strong corrosion.

In the steelmaking industry, silicon carbide balls are a new type of composite deoxidizer that can replace the more expensive traditional deoxidizers ferrosilicon powder and alloy powder. It has the advantages of fast deoxidation speed, early slag formation, strong reducing atmosphere, and rich foam. It can effectively improve the absorption rate of elements, and also has a carbon-enhancing effect, reducing steelmaking costs. Therefore, it is particularly popular in the steelmaking industry.

In general, silicon carbide balls are a material with excellent physical and chemical properties, and are widely used in many industrial fields.
