The Applications of Ferro Vanadium 40 50 60 80

Date: Nov 14th, 2023
Ferro Vanadium is usually produced from Vanadium sludge (or titanium bearing magnetite ore processed to produce pig iron) & available in the range V: 50 – 85%. Ferro Vanadium acts as a universal hardener, strengthener & anti-corrosive additive for steels like High strength low alloy steel, tool steel, as well as other ferrous-based products. Ferrous vanadium is a ferroalloy used in the iron and steel industry. It is mainly composed of vanadium and iron, but also contains sulfur, phosphorus, silicon, aluminum and other impurities.

Ferrovanadium contains a higher vanadium content, and its composition and properties determine its higher strength and corrosion resistance. In the process of producing steel, adding a certain proportion of ferrovanadium can reduce the combustion temperature of steel, reduce the oxides on the surface of the steel billet, thereby improving the quality of the steel. It can also strengthen the tensile strength and toughness of steel and improve corrosion resistance.

Ferro Vanadium can be used as a raw material for vanadium chemicals to produce ammonium vanadate, sodium vanadate and other chemical products. In addition, in the metallurgical industry, the use of ferrovanadium can extend the service life of smelting furnace bricks and reduce production costs.
