Application and precautions of various ceramic crucibles

As an important part of chemical equipment, crucible is a container for melting and refining metal liquid and heating solid-liquid reaction, which is the basis for the smooth progress of chemical reaction. Crucibles were originally made of clay, and one of the earliest uses of platinum was to make crucibles. With the development of manufacturing […]

Understanding the Power of Neodymium Permanent Magnets

Have you heard a little bit about them but are unsure of their amazing capabilities and how they could potentially benefit your life? If so, this blog post is for you! Neodymium permanent magnets have been on the scene for many years […]

Element Properties:60-69 atomic number

NEODYMIUM, GADOLINIUM, TERBIUM, Dysprosium, HOLMIUM, ERBIUM NEODYMIUM Atomic symbol: Nd Atomic weight: 144.24 Atomic number: 60 Electron configuration: 2-8-18-22-8-2 Oxidation states: +3 State of matter: solid Heavy metal, brittle Discovered in 1885 by Carl Auer von Welsbach Boils at 3127°C, melts at 1010°C Notes: Used in special alloys and glasses, neodymium is a silvery-white color […]

Features and uses of different types of crucibles

Crucibles are specialized containers for melting metallic materials at very high temperatures. The molten material is cast into new objects or used to make new alloys (different metals combined in specific proportions). Since crucibles are used to melt materials at high temperatures, the material used to make the crucible must have a higher melting point […]

Element Properties:53-59 atomic number

CESIUM, IODINE, BARIUM, LANTHANUM, CERIUM, PRASEODYMIUM IODINE Atomic symbol: I Atomic weight: 126.90447 Atomic number: 53 Electron configuration: 2-8-18-18-7 Oxidation states: ±1, +5, 7 State of matter: solid Non-metal Discovered in 1811 by Bernard Courtois Boils at 184°C, melts at 113.5°C Notes: Iodine is bluish-black in color with a metallic luster, characteristic odor, and sharp […]

Ultra-high temperature materials

What are ultra-high temperature materials   Ultra-high-temperature materials refer to the most heat-resistant high-grade materials that can be used as usual under severe environments such as stress and oxidation, and at an ultra-high temperature of about 2000°C. Research and application of ultra-high temperature materials    1. Refractory metal Refractory metals (W, Mo, Ta, Nb, Zr, etc.) […]

The Main Applications of PBN

Pyrolytic Boron Nitride, abbreviated as Pyrolytic BN or PBN, also known as Chemical vapour-deposited Boron Nitride, Chemical Vapour-deposition of Boron Nitride or CVD-BN, etc. As the name suggests, this is a kind of boron nitride prepared by high temperature pyrolysis reaction by chemical vapor deposition method. Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN) material has high purity, chemical […]

Element Properties: 46-52 atomic number

PALLADIUM, SILVER, CADMIUM, INDIUM, TIN, ANTIMONY, TELLURIUM PALLADIUM Atomic symbol: Pd Atomic weight: 106.42 Atomic number: 46 Electron configuration: 2-8-18-18-0 Oxidation states: +2, +4 State of matter: solid Heavy metal, ductile Discovered in 1803 by William Hyde Wollaston Boils at 2927°C, melts at 1552°C Notes: Palladium is a silver, white metal that also occurs as […]

Vacuum smelting high-pressure gas atomization technology

The atomization method is a powder preparation method in which a fast-moving fluid (atomization medium) impacts or otherwise breaks the metal or alloy liquid into fine droplets, and then condenses into a solid powder. The atomized powder particles not only have the same uniform chemical composition as the established molten alloy, but also due to […]

Alloying of molybdenum

The alloying principle of molybdenum is similar to that of tungsten. All the strengthening methods used to improve the heat resistance of tungsten are basically applicable to molybdenum. There are mainly the following types: solid solution strengthening, precipitation strengthening, dispersion strengthening and composite strengthening. Solution strengthening Solid solution strengthening includes the addition of trace elements […]
