Ferro Vanadium




Ferro Vanadium was primarily recovered from titanium-bearing magnetite ore processed to produce pig iron. The process produces a slag containing 20% to 24% vanadium pentoxide, which can be further processed to ferrovanadium containing 40% to 50% vanadium. 84% came from ferrovanadium and nearly all of it (99%) went into steel manufacturing. The Ferro Vanadium is used as an alloying agent for the metals iron and steel and also aerospace.

Size : 10-100 mm or as required

Melting Point : 1900oC

 

Application
The most important use of vanadium is as an additive for steel.  It is used for the production of rust resistant, spring and high speed tool steels. It is also added to steels to stabilize carbides. Vanadium foil is also used to bond titanium to steel. Due to its low fission neutron cross section vanadium is also used in nuclear applications. The Ferro Vanadium is used as an alloying agent for the metals iron & steel and also aero.
