Ferromanganese is a ferroalloy with high content of manganese which has a vast application as e.g. deoxidizer in steelmaking industry. A variety of different carbonaceous materials are being used for the production of ferromanganese. There is few data on the dissolution rate of carbonaceous material in Mn containing metals. This paper focus on the kinetic analysis of Fe-Mn alloys carburization reactions. Dissolution rate of graphite in pure iron and three different alloys with 40wt%, 60wt% and 85wt% manganese at 1823K was studied. Results showed that the dissolution rate of carbon from graphite increased as time increased for all alloys. The rate constant increased with the increasing manganese content of the alloys.
