Description of Vanadium Carbide VC Powder:

Vanadium carbide is an organic compound. Vanadium carbide Formula VC. Black cubic crystals Vanadium carbide melting point 2810degC Vanadium carbide Point boiling It is 3900 deg C. The relative density of 5.77. It is slightly more hard than quartz, at 9 to 9.5 Moher. It is the strongest known metal carbide. Vanadium metal alloys contain vanadium carbide. Vanadium pentoxide can be reduced with coke to make vanadium carbide. This is the main use of vanadium pentoxide in making vanadium steel. These additives can be used to make cemented carbide.

It is similar in structure to vanadium monoxide and crystallizes within the rock salt structure. VC and VO can be dissolved in each other, so VC samples often contain oxide impurities. The vanadium dioxide and carbon are heated to make it. It can be made at temperatures of around 1000C. Although VC can be heated to a temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius, it will convert to V2C when exposed to higher temperatures.

Production Method of Vanadium Carbide VC Powder:

Carbonization method:

Carbonization is one of the main methods for producing vanadium carbide. The method is to carbonize a mixture of vanadium and carbon at high temperatures, usually at temperatures above 1000 ° C. In the carbonization process, carbon reacts with vanadium to form vanadium carbide. In order to obtain high-quality vanadium carbide, it is necessary to control key parameters such as reaction temperature, reaction time, and raw material ratio. In addition, in order to prevent deflagration or explosion during the carbonization process, appropriate safety measures need to be taken.

In the carbonization process, a mixture of vanadium and carbon is placed in a high-temperature furnace, usually using an electric arc furnace or induction furnace. During the heating process, the mixture gradually changes to a liquid state and remains high enough to allow the carbon to fully react with the vanadium. At the end of the reaction, vanadium carbide product was obtained. In order to obtain high-purity vanadium carbide, subsequent processing, such as melting, refining, and separation, is required.

Thermal reduction method:

Thermal reduction is another method of producing vanadium carbide. The method is to react vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) with a carbon-reducing agent at a high temperature to produce vanadium carbide and oxygen. Commonly used reducing agents include coke, charcoal, and so on. In the process of thermal reduction, the reducing agent chemically reacts with vanadium pentoxide to reduce vanadium to metal vanadium and simultaneously generates vanadium carbide and oxygen.

The thermal reduction process is usually carried out in a high-temperature furnace, where a high vacuum is maintained. The mixture of vanadium pentoxide and reducing agent is fed into the furnace, heated to high temperature, and the reduction reaction is carried out. At the end of the reaction, vanadium carbide product was obtained. In order to obtain high-purity vanadium carbide, subsequent processing, such as refining and separation, is required.

Application of Vanadium Carbide VC Powder:

Wear-resistant materials: Vanadium carbide's high hardness and excellent wear-resistant properties make it widely used in the field of wear-resistant materials. For example, vanadium carbide can be used to manufacture wear-resistant devices such as bearings, gears, and tools to improve their service life and performance. In these applications, vanadium carbide effectively resists wear and corrosion through its high hardness and excellent wear resistance, thereby extending the service life of the equipment.

Cutting tools: Because vanadium carbide has high hardness, high wear resistance, and excellent thermal conductivity, it is widely used in the manufacture of cutting tools, such as drills, milling cutters, and turning tools. These tools can stay sharp during cutting and have a long service life. Compared to traditional tool materials, vanadium carbide tools have higher cutting speeds and longer service life.

Aerospace field: Vanadium carbide has excellent high-temperature performance and can maintain stable performance in high-temperature environments. Therefore, vanadium carbide is widely used in the manufacture of high-temperature structural materials in the aerospace field, such as blades and combustion chambers of aircraft engines. Vanadium carbide can withstand high temperatures and stresses while having excellent corrosion resistance, making it an ideal material choice for aerospace applications.

Energy field: The high thermal conductivity of vanadium carbide makes it have potential application value in the energy field. For example, vanadium carbide can be used as a radiator material for efficient energy conversion devices such as solar panels and fuel cells. In addition, vanadium carbide can also be used as a control rod material in nuclear reactors.

Other fields: Vanadium carbide can also be used in ceramic materials, electronic materials, and other fields. In ceramic materials, vanadium carbide can enhance the strength and wear resistance of ceramic materials. In electronic materials, vanadium carbide has good thermal conductivity and stable electrical properties and can be used to manufacture integrated circuit boards, electronic component radiators, etc.
