  • Patent number: 5147831
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing fine grained, sintering active nitride and/or carbonitride powder of titanium as well as, optionally, of other metals of the IVA, VA and VIA group of the periodic table of elements. In order to achieve, without any considerable comminution, a grain of high purity with a low grain size, the following steps are performed:The introduction into the reactor of a reaction mixture consisting of oxides of titanium and, optionally, of other metals of the IVA, VA and VIA group of the periodic system and a carbonaceous material;providing a nitrogen atmosphere in the reactor at a decreased pressure;heating the content of the reactor to a temperature of between 800.degree. C. and 2000.degree. C., preferably between 1000.degree. C. and 1900.degree. C., and keeping the temperature within a range of between 1400.degree. C. and 1800.degree. C.

  • Patent number: 4786319
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the production of rare earth metals and alloys thereof. The process exploits the known advantages of metallothermal reduction techniques while decisively enhancing their reduction process. Rare earth halides and/or rare earth oxides are reduced in an electric arc furnace by means of one or several alkaline earth metals, preferably, calcium. Additives such as iron metals or other alloying elements, alkali- and/or alkaline earth metal salt, may be added to the electric arc furnace in a two-phase furnace operation. The reduction takes place in an atmosphere inert to rare earth metals, rare earth compounds, and alkaine earth metals. Agitation is produced in the metal in the furnace by eletromagnetic forces caused by a suitably selected current-to-voltage ratio for the electric arc, in order to achieve reduction in the shortest possible time and as completely as possible.

  • Patent number: 4146571
    Abstract: Sodium percarbonate is prepared from a reaction mixture of an Mg.sup.++ containing hydrogen peroxide solution, sodium hexametaphosphate and an aqueous sodium carbonate suspension containing sodium chloride and/or sodium sulfate, wherein the initial reaction mixture contains only 3-50%, by weight, of the soda suspension while the remainder of the reactants are added subsequently. The mixture is continuously stirred until the level of peroxide remains constant, and the crystalline percarbonate is then separated.

  • Patent number: 4142871
    Abstract: An abrasive material is prepared from a starting material comprised of a spent metallic catalyst on an alumina carrier by melting the starting material with a reducing agent to obtain a melt consisting of a melt component including the alumina on an alloy residue, cooling the melt at a speed correlated with a desired crystallite size of the abrasive material to be obtained, and mechanically separating the melt component from the alloy residue before or after solidification, the melt component constituting the abrasive material.

  • Patent number: 4089706
    Abstract: Flint is produced from a mischmetal and iron melt by permitting the alloy melt to cool in a mold at a slow enough rate that, as the solidification point of the melt is approached, its temperature is maintained at 800.degree.-600.degree. C for at least 10 minutes. The alloy melt is subsequently extruded and the extrudate is subjected to a heat treatment at temperatures from 370.degree.-470.degree. C for 1/2 to 4 hours, the heat treatment being discontinued before the limit value of the thermodynamic equilibrium has been reached.

  • Patent number: 4059417
    Abstract: Abrasive granules are produced from alumina or an alumina-zirconia mixture by melting the oxide material and rapidly cooling the melt. To control the solidification velocity, the melt is cast into a molten chloride of Na, Ca, Ba, Mg or mixtures thereof to cool the oxide material melt, the chloride is separated from the cooled and solidified oxide material, and thereafter abrasive granules are produced from the solidified oxide material.
