There are 5 steps to make the niobium zirconium alloy 10 (niobium-zirconium, Nb-Zr 90/10 wt%).
Step 1: Take 9.5%-10.5% atomic energy level zirconium sponge and 89.5%-90.5% hydrogenation dehydrogenization niobium powder as per weight. Total percentage is .
Step 2: Make the hydrogenation dehydrogenization niobium powder to electrode and purify it, then put it into the vacuum arc furnace to form niobium ingot.
Step 3: Remove the impurities from atomic energy level zirconium sponge, wash and vacuum drying it, form the zirconium into ingot. Forge the ingot to zirconium sheet by hot rolling and cold rolling.
Step 4: Cut the zirconium sheet to strip, use the same length as the niobium ingot in Step 2. Glue the zirconium strip on niobium ingot, put them in vacuum filled argon welding chamber, we can get niobium zirconium compound ingot niobium-zirconium, Nb-Zr 90/10 wt% .
Melt the niobium zirconium compound ingot niobium-zirconium, Nb-Zr 90/10 wt% to electrode, then smelt the electrode in consumable electrode vacuum furnace for 5-6h, filling argon for cooling for 3.5-4h. Cut the alloy ingot to pieces, smelt for another 5-6h and argon cooling for 3.5-4h. At last we get niobium zirconium alloy 10 (niobium-zirconium, Nb-Zr 90/10 wt% ) .
