Applications And Characteristics Of Ferrovanadium Alloys

Date: Dec 6th, 2023
As a member of the vanadium family element in the periodic table of elements, vanadium has an atomic number of 23, an atomic weight of 50.942, a melting point of 1887 degrees, and a boiling point of 3337 degrees. Pure vanadium is shiny white, hard in texture, and is body-centered. mechanism. About 80% of vanadium is used together with iron as an alloying element in steel. Steels containing vanadium are very hard and strong, but generally contain less than 1% vanadium.

Ferrovanadium is mainly used as an alloy additive in steelmaking. After adding ferrovanadium to steel, the hardness, strength, wear resistance and ductility of the steel can be significantly improved, and the cutting performance of the steel can be improved. Ferrovanadium is commonly used in the production of carbon steel, low-alloy strength steel, high-alloy steel, tool steel and cast iron. Ferromanganese 65# uses: used in steelmaking and cast iron as deoxidizer, desulfurizer and alloy element additive; Ferromanganese 65# particle size: natural block is less than 30Kg, and can also be processed according to user requirements. Application of niobium in permanent magnet materials: The addition of niobium improves the crystal structure of NdFeB materials, refines the grain structure, and increases the coercive force of the material; it plays a unique role in the oxidation resistance of the material.

Vanadium-containing high-strength low-alloy steel (HSLA) is widely used in the production and construction of oil/gas pipelines, buildings, bridges, rails, pressure vessels, carriage frames, etc. due to its high strength. Various vanadium-containing ferrosteels have an increasingly wide range of applications.
