Dear all, 

I am searching about the magnetic properties of ferrosilicon ( 15% or 20% Si content). Anyone, please send me complete magnetic property details of FeSi with various composition.

Thanks in advance

Some further clarity required perhaps. You mention a 15% or 20%Si FeSi. Are we talking about a ferrosilicon ferroalloy here ie. the bulk commodity, or are you referring to a dense media powder. And what is your process context to know the magnetic properties? A magnetic susceptibility analysis can be a fairly meaningless singular determination if the information is not used in context too something, then its simply just an arbitrary result..

Thank you for your reply,

Actually the question is about FeSi powder (in size range of microns). I have an idea to use this ferrosilicon powder to replace corbonyl iron powder in MR fluids. As it has good magnetic saturation property compare to corbonyl iron I came to this conclusion, but still I need more clarification to know about the suitability for this application.

Sorry for late response.
