Aluminothermic process for the preparation of Ferromolybdenum and Ferrovanadium

Suri, A K and Mukherjee, T K and Gupta, C K (1983) Aluminothermic process for the preparation of Ferromolybdenum and Ferrovanadium. In: Proceedings of the Seminar on Problems and Prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry in India, Oct. 24-26, 1983, NML, Jamshedpur.



The paper presents laboratory development of processes involving aluminothermic reduction, in open reactors, for the preparation of ferromolybdenum and ferrovanadium starting from indigenously available resources. The coverage incorporates chemical processing that has been developed for treating the starting resources such as low grade sulphide concentrate/molybdenum scrap/molybdenum laden solution for molybdenum and vanadium bearing slag or vanadium sludge for vanadium to prepare suitable intermed-iates. These essentially constitute raw materials develop-ed as alternative to the conventional ores for the two ferroalloys.
