Ferro Vanadium

Ferro Vanadium is usually produced from Vanadium sludge (or titanium bearing magnetite ore processed to produce pig iron) & available in the range V: 50 – 85%. Ferro Vanadium acts as a universal hardener, strengthener & anti-corrosive additive for steels like High strength low alloy steel, tool steel, as well as other ferrous-based products. Ferro Vanadium is mainly produced in China. China, Russia & South Africa account for more than 75% of global vanadium mine production. Ferro Vanadium can also be supplied as Nitrided FeV. The strengthening effect of Vanadium is enhanced in presence of increased Nitrogen levels.

Application: Vanadium when added to steel gives stability against alkalis as well as sulphuric & hydrochloric acids. Vanadium is used in production of tool steel, airplane steel, high strength & high tensile steel, spring steel, rail road steel & oil pipeline steel.
