Ferroalloy refers to various alloys of iron with a high proportion of one or more other elements
Ferrotitanium is an alloy of iron and titanium and it is used in steelmaking as a cleaning agent for iron and steel. The titanium is highly reactive with sulphur, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen, forming insoluble compounds and sequestering them in slag, and is therefore used for deoxidizing, and sometimes for desulfurization and DE nitrification. Ferrotitanium powder can be also used as a fuel in some pyrotechnic compositions and aviation industry due to his high strength and low weight. Titanium is also used as coolant in Blast Furnace and alloying element in casting units.
