How Chromium Works?

0 Comment

How Chromium Works? In this article, we will take a look at how chromium works. The melting point of chromium is the lowest of the abundant refractory metals, but it is more than 700 degrees above that of iron. The density of chromium is slightly less than that of iron. At elevated temperatures, it acquires […]

Why Is Vanadium A Transition Metal?

0 Comment

Why Is Vanadium A Transition Metal? The melting point of vanadium is about 1000 degrees lower than that of columbium, so there is much less interest in vanadium for high-temperature applications than in the abundant refractory metals. Pure vanadium has only recently become available in quantities large enough for thorough studies of its physical and […]

The List Of Abundant Refractory Metals

0 Comment

The List Of Abundant Refractory Metals Tungsten, tantalum, molybdenum, columbium, vanadium, and chromium may be classed as relatively abundant refractory metals; that is, free world reserves of contained metal are over 100,000 tons for each metal. The first four show promise in a considerably higher temperature range than the last two, and sometimes the term […]
