Molybdenum in the Steel Industry

0 Comment

The addition of molybdenum greatly increases the strength, toughness, heat resistance, corrosion resistance, and weldability of all types of alloy steels. Although molybdenum is primarily used in the steel industry, it has a wide range of properties that are expanding its use in other alloys and in the chemical industry. Traditional Mo-Co/Al2O3 and Mo-Ni/Al2O3 are […]

Why are Refractory Metals Used in Nuclear Reactions?

0 Comment

Refractory metals are metallic elements of the periodic table with unique properties such as extremely high melting points. However, they can remain solid at room temperature. These characteristics make these materials ideal for research-based and critical nuclear reactions. What Are Refractory Metals? Refractory metals possess a melting point above 2,000° Celsius (3,632° F) and are […]

What Material is a Crucible Made of?

0 Comment

The use of crucibles can be traced back several years before the industrial revolution. And today, it is an essential item used either in laboratories for conducting high-temperature chemical reactions and analyses or in large manufacturing plants for melting and calcining metal and ore; they may be made of clay, graphite, porcelain, or a relatively […]

What Happens if Rhenium Is Alloyed to Niobium, Tungsten, and Tantalum?

0 Comment

Rhenium is added to high-temperature superalloys that are used to make jet engine parts, using 70% of the worldwide rhenium production. Another major application is in platinum–rhenium catalysts, which are primarily used in making lead-free, high-octane gasoline. Nickel-based superalloys have improved creep resistance with the addition of rhenium. Alloys normally contain 3% or 6% rhenium. […]
