Silicon (Electrical) Steel
Seaharvest provides the two main product groups of the electrical steel
Grain Oriented (Static Machines):
- Produced from low carbon steel of approx. 3% silicon content, mainly used for the production of high-power transformers cores and distribution transformers.
Non-grain oriented (Rotating Machines):
- Either high alloy steels containing up to 3% Si and 1% Al, Characterized by low transmission loss.
- Low alloy, Lower Si/Al regular core loss steels
- Both are the basic building blocks for magnetic circuits in rotating machinery and for small transformers (Low Power Transformers Cores)
