Carbide properties of Molybdenum
Its chemical formula is
MoC is Molecular Weight and is 107.95.
It exhibits high melting point, hardness and thermal stability. It has a melting point of 2692 degrees Celsius. It’s insoluble in water and Lye. However, it is slightly solubilized in hydrofluoric acid, sulfuric and nitric acids.
There are two main kinds of catalytic reaction for molybdenum caride
1. Hydrogenation reaction
2. Hydrodesulfurization HDS or hydrodenitrogenation HDN;
3. The Isomerization Reaction
4. The hydrocarbon conversion and the synthesis reaction
5. Use in the ammonia synthesis
Prepare molybdenum carbonide
Preparation principle: Mo+C-
They can either be mixed directly, or they are prepared through the reaction between molybdenum dioxide and molybdate under a reducing atmosphere of 800degC.
The global consumption structure shows that molybdenum has been an ally to iron. Molybdenum is consumed in 80% of Western developed nations’ steel consumption. Steel absorbs 30% of all molybdenum while low-alloy and stainless steel absorb 30%. Drill bits and cutting instruments account for 10%. Cast steel makes up 10%. The remaining 20% is used in molybdenum chemical, petroleum refining and molybdenum oil lubricants. The United States had 75% of its molybdenum production capacity in 1998.
Additionally, the aerospace, metal processing, electronics and other industries are increasingly reliant on molybdenum based alloys.
1. Molybdenum alloy
The most popular molybdenum alloy, TZM-alloy has high strengths and excellent comprehensive properties. The United States utilizes TZM alloy for making turbine disks. It accounts for 15% the entire molybdenum content. There are 22 grade levels of molybdenum in my country, which includes TZM alloy. The country’s output of molybdenum materials and products was almost 200 tons in the early 1990s.
The high mechanical qualities of TZM or TZC molybdenum alloys is better than pure molybdenum. These alloys are often used to make high-tech molds as well as various structural parts. Since the early 20th century, they have been used in hot-perforated plugs for various seamless steel pipe. This type of sintered molybdenum pulp is made by powder smelting technology. The average service life of this plug is 1.5 to 2.
This seamless tube, made from molybdenum/rhenium alloy and 50% Re (which has outstanding high performance), can be used at temperatures near its melting point. This tube can also be used to form the bracket, the ring, the grid, or any other part of the thermowell or the cathode in the electron tubes.
Molybdenum or molybdenum alloys are not only strong, but they also possess good thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. They have the same advantages as electron tube glasses, which is similar to that of electron tubes. Therefore, plates, strips, foils, etc. Produced using conventional processing methods. These are used in electronic tubes, anodes, support materials, parts, metal processing tools, such as extrusion and die casting dies, forging and dies, die-casting dies and die-casting dies. These components are extensively used.
2. Alloying steel elements
The ally to steel molybdenum together with nickel and chrome can decrease embrittlement during heat treatment in alloy steels. To address the problem of low tungsten resource, America has been leading by using molybdenum in high-speed stainless steel. Molybdenum, according to calculations has twice the capacity of tungsten. The steel that contains 18% of tungsten can now be replaced with the steel that has 9% molybdenum. Moreover, chrome and vanadium can be added together. This greatly lowers steel’s production costs. In stainless steel, molybdenum plays a vital role in improving corrosion resistance and strength. It also improves weldability. You can clearly see that molybdenum is an important component of the steel industry.
3. Other uses
Molybdenum is very stable under vacuum pressure, working temperature and pressure. This means that the parts made of molybdenum are least likely to cause any pollution or damage to workpieces in the furnace. Furthermore, evaporation loss won’t affect high-molybdenum items such as heating elements, thermal insulation, and encapsulation.
Molybdenum’s high strength makes it an ideal material for electrodes and equipment used in rapid heating. Mollybdenum has a chemical compatibility with many glass components. It will not cause any harmful color effects by allowing a tiny amount to dissolve in the glass melting tray. The life expectancy of a molybdenum heating electrode can reach 3 to 5 year in a glass melt furnace.
