Application of Molybdenum Metal
Ground Finished Aircraft Sintered ASTM Molybdenum Rod is an essential trace element in the human body, animals and plants. It has a series of advantages such as high melting point, high hardness, good high temperature resistance, stable chemical properties, excellent mechanical properties, long service life, high cost performance and wide application. High Purity Pure Molybdenum Products Bar Rod 99.95% can be used in metallurgical processing, automobile manufacturing, aerospace, high temperature industry, petrochemical industry, military industry and nuclear industry and other fields. Some common areas are described below:
1. Metallurgical processing industry
Molybdenum is an additive in the production of various alloy steels, and can also form advanced alloys with tungsten, nickel, cobalt, zirconium, titanium, vanadium, rhenium, etc. Alloy steel containing molybdenum can be used to manufacture transportation devices, high-speed cutting tools, precision instruments and seawater engineering equipment, etc. With the increase of molybdenum content, the high temperature strength, durability and creep resistance of alloy steel will be better and better. Metal molybdenum can also improve the corrosion resistance of steel to reducing medium, pitting corrosion resistance, crevice corrosion resistance and other properties.
2. Petrochemical industry
In the chemical industry, molybdenum is mainly used in lubricants, catalysts and pigments. It has good lubricating properties under high temperature and high pressure, and is widely used as an additive for oil and grease. Molybdenum is a catalyst component in hydrogen desulfurization and other petroleum refining processes, and is used in redox reactions in the manufacture of ethanol, formaldehyde, and oil-based chemicals.
3. High temperature industry
Metal molybdenum is widely used as heating material and structural material of high-temperature electric furnace, as well as large-scale electrode and grid of vacuum tube, semiconductor and electric light source material.
4. Other heavy industries
Alloys of molybdenum, nickel and chromium can be used to make components or parts of aircraft, tanks, guns, rockets, satellites, locomotives and automobiles. Molybdenum has a small thermal neutron capture cross-section and high durability, so it can also be used as a structural material for nuclear reactors.
