Rare, refractory metals and alloys
The group of rare metals includes more than fifty elements. Their main peculiarity is that they are little known and rarely used in industry. Modern industry finds adequate use for very few of them.
They have been on the market for a relatively short time. Vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, rhenium, etc. began to be actively used in the first third of the last century. Technological schemes of production and use of refractory metals were developed experimentally by the leading metallurgists of that time. Today, there is a trend towards expanding the scope of these elements, in particular for alloying heat-resistant alloys or for their use on their own. Using certain techniques, such as powder metallurgy, developed by leading experts in this field, it is possible to produce materials with exceptional properties.
To smelt rare refractory metals, melting equipment designed for the highest temperature is used. Their production is governed by the relevant documentation, which specifies the basic requirements for the production process: melting, shaping and processing.
These metals are added to alloys in small quantities to produce particularly important heat-resistant products. They are used to make materials which are irreplaceable in nuclear power engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, military industrial complex - without any alternative in their field. Refractory metals found their application in alloys working in aggressive environments, in processing of other metals, in geological prospecting for shock-rotary drilling, in thermometry of metallurgical processes
The main indicative feature of any metal is its belonging to a particular group in the periodic table, which allows competently carry out the selection of compatible elements in the alloy. In this case, the task associated with giving alloys certain improved properties is greatly facilitated. Lanthanides are used to produce complex mechanisms that are used in mechanical engineering and radio engineering. In electrical engineering, lanthanides stabilize alloys against harmful factors and acidic environments. This point is very significant because it is of great importance in the manufacture of, for example, welding electrodes.
