Assaying Tungsten Determination

In dealing with wolfram ores and concentrates, we identified 3 three determination methods for the estimation and Assaying Tungsten that are discussed below are well known, but these results of their trials and comparison under technical conditions may be interesting.

Tungsten Assaying Method 1

The routine procedure for the assay of rich wolfram ores or concentrates was as

Tungsten Metallurgy

Nearly all alloy steels containing tungsten are made in the electric furnace where tungsten is introduced to the steel’s metallurgy in the form of ferro-tungsten. Ferro-tungsten, melts between 3500 and 3700 degrees F., while tungsten powder melts between 6000 and 6200 degrees F. Neither will actually melt in

Extraction of Tungsten from Scheelite Ore

High price and ready market for acceptable tungsten concentrates present a very attractive incentive for the mining and processing of tungsten ores. Since all tungsten ores are very friable and slime easily, concentration must take place as soon as the mineral has been liberated by either crushing or grinding methods.

Regardless of the care taken

Tungsten Molybdenum System

Molybdenum Molybdenum

A complete list of the elements includes 18 that melt above 1,700° 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,

Froth Flotation of Tungsten Ore

Scheelite (CaWO4) and Wolframite ((Fe,Mn)WO4) are the principal minerals of tungsten, but other important minerals include ferberite (FeWO4) and huebnerite (MnWO4) will also respond to froth flotation. The high specific gravity of these minerals makes many of these ores amenable to gravity concentration methods,
