Molybdenum Steel Alloys

It is twenty years since the writer made his first molybdenum steels and others were making them commercially five years earlier but the prevailing opinion seems to be that molybdenum steels are new; from time to time the daily press speaks of important discoveries in Europe and intimates that American steel makers have much to … Read more

Molybdenum Ore Processing by Flotation

This molybdenum flotationĀ circuit, based on 250-500 tons per 24 hours is designed for low-grade molybdenum ore having high-grade streaks and with pyrite-quartz gangue. It is also basically sound for many other friable sulphide ores, such as antimony, silver and even some lead ores. The basic ideas stressed in this moly flotation flowsheet are the importance … Read more

Tungsten Molybdenum System

A complete list of the elements includes 18 that melt above 1,700Ā° C. There does not exist one complete thermal equilibrium diagram for any pair of these 18 elements. Several of these elements have been combined, in relatively small proportions, with metals of lower melting point: e.g. tungsten, molybdenum, and vanadium, in steels, or with … Read more

Molybdenum Flotation

A Molybdenum Flotation case study with about 6% of the molybdenum contained in the feed is present as an oxide form and about 90% of this is not recovered to the flotation concentrate. Recovery of molybdenum into the rougher concentrate varied between 90 to 95% at a concentrate grade of 2.5 to 3.7% molybdenum. The … Read more
