Technology of vanadium extraction from vanadium ore

Firmetal, 2019-04-22 09:15:00 PM

Vanadium has good plasticity and malleability. It can be made into sheet, drawn into wire and processed into foil at room temperature. But a small amount of impurities, especially interstitial elements (such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen) can significantly affect the physical properties of vanadium. For example, when hydrogen in vanadium is 0.01%, it will cause embrittlement and reduce plasticity. The melting point rises to 2,458 when carbon is 2.7%. K. Vanadium has high melting point, high hardness, high resistivity, weak paramagnetism, small linear expansion coefficient, and similar elastic modulus density to steel, so it can be used as structural material.

Pure tantalum can be rolled into sheets, sheets, sheets, sheets, pipes, and bars at room temperature. To reduce oxidation, pure tantalum plastic processing at room temperature or below 500 ℃. Tantalum alloy with high strength and ingot casting low plasticity, must be sufficiently above 1200 ℃, the processing technology of the same as the pure tantalum. The extrusion ratio should be greater than 4 and the forging ratio should be greater than 2. When the billet is heated, the plasticity of the material should be decreased due to gas pollution. Cross rolling is used to ensure good stamping and spinning properties. The rate of cross - rolling should be maintained at about 80%. Tantalum plate can be made into cup, cap, pipe, cone, nozzle and other parts of different shapes by spinning and deep-drawing. The diameter of the rotary forging rod for drawing is generally 2.5mm.
