FeSi (Ferrosilicon) is an alloy of iron, which is produced by melting silicon with quarts, as well as scrap iron, usually in an arc furnace. The most common ratios of Ferrosilicon are 50%, 65% and 75%. DMS Powders is a leading supplier of FeSi alloy, Ferrosilicon, for use in the process of Dense Media Separation.

Dense media separation is the separation process of diamonds from diamond bearing material. The diamond bearing material is submerged in a liquid / pulp with a very specific density, which is where FeSi alloy, Ferrosilicon, comes in. The dense pulp is achieved by mixing the Ferrosilicon powder with water, until the desired density is reached. This liquid will cause the diamonds to separate from other material, making the processing of diamonds easier.
DMS Powders supplies a wide range of Atomised and Milled ferrosilicon grades, to fit the needs of different applications and requirements. Density, Viscosity and Medium are essential properties to consider when selecting a ferrosilicon grade for the specific application in dense media separation. Once the operating density has been determined, the correct viscosity and stability needs to be calculated.
