  • Patent number: 11396451
    Abstract: A tungsten carbide powder contains tungsten carbide as a main component and chromium, in which, when mass concentrations of tungsten and chromium are measured at 100 or more analysis points randomly selected from a field of view of SEM observation of the tungsten carbide powder, a standard deviation ? of distribution of the ratio by percentage of the concentration of chromium to the total concentration of tungsten and chromium is 0.5 or less.

  • Patent number: 11293082
    Abstract: A powder containing tungsten carbide has an Fsss particle size of greater than or equal to 0.3 ?m and less than or equal to 1.5 ?m, and a content rate of the tungsten carbide of greater than or equal to 90% by mass. The powder has a crystallite size (average particle diameter) Y satisfying a relational expression of Y?0.1×X+0.20 (X: the Fsss particle size of the power containing tungsten carbide).

  • Patent number: 9512504
    Abstract: Provided are a method for producing sodium tungstate by supplying an oxidant made of sodium nitrate or sodium nitrite to bring a tungsten containing material and the oxidant into contact with each other in an atmosphere containing oxygen to thereby continuously produce a reaction product; a method for collecting tungsten using the method; and an apparatus for producing sodium tungstate. Also provided are a method for producing a sodium tungstate aqueous solution in which a reductant is introduced into a melt containing the above-described reaction product which is then dissolved in water; and a method for collecting tungsten using the method.
