Microstructural characterization in metallurgical grade silicon after treatment by CaO-SiO2 and Na2O-SiO2 Slags

The microstructure and impurities distribution in metallurgical grade silicon with treated by CaO-SiO2 and Na2O-SiO2 slags were investigated. An exhaustive analysis of the transformation of precipitated phase at grain boundaries has been carried out. Prior to slag treatment, Si-Fe system intermetallic was the primary precipitated phase in metalllurgical grade silicon. After treated by CaO-SiO2 slag, Si-Ca system intermetallic became the main precipitated phase, such as Si-Ca, Si-Ca-Ti, Si-Ca-Al and Si-Fe-Ca. But Na2O-SiO2 slag had another result on refining metallurgical grade silicon; only Si-Fe-Ti phase was generated in precipitated phase and the low level of sodium in treated silicon was obtained. ?
