What’s Silicon Carbide?
Silicon Carbide also known as Emery is composed of quartz sand (or petroleum coke), coal coke, and wood chips. There are rare minerals found in Silicon Carbide. The most common and most economically-friendly silicon carbide can be found in contemporary C,N,B and other nonoxide high tech refractory material raw materials. This type is also known as gold, steel sand and refractory. China’s industrial production of Silicon Carbide is currently divided into green and black silicon carbide. These are both hexagonal crystals having a specific gravity 3.203.25 and a microhardness 2.8403.320 kg/mm2.
Silicon Carbide: Development history
American Acheson fused Diamond experiment discovered silicon carbide. He mistakenly thought he had found a diamond combination in his laboratory. Acheson then studied 1893 industrial melting silicon carbide methods. We often refer to Acheson furnace as being in use today. First detected in meteorites was silicon carbide in 1905. The first silicon carbide crystalled was made in 1907. Boston was the site of the inaugural World Silicon Carbide Conference, which took place in 1958 for scientific exchange. The research of CREE led to the establishment of a production line for silicon carbide. In 1987, suppliers started to offer silicon carbide commercially.
Application of silicon carbide
Silicon carbide can serve as an abrasive.
