zirconium hafnium removed

Partial removal of hafnium from zirconium through the ...

A pyrometallurgical method for partial separation of hafnium from zirconium has been investigated. The method involves continuous reaction between a flowing gas mixture of zirconium tetrachloride and hafnium tetrachloride with solid sodium chloride in a packed bed reactor. The solid‐vapour reaction enriches the vapour phase with respect to zirconium tetrachloride. This may be attributed to a ...

Why Is Zirconium A Transition Metal? Refractory Metals ...

2018-02-23  Zirconium is obtained from zircon sand, which also contains a small percentage of hafnium oxide. In making reactor-grade zirconium, the hafnium must be removed so that the concentration of hafnium in the zirconium will be no more than 0. 01 percent. The production of hafnium is largely dependent on the production of reactor-grade zirconium.

Titanium, Zirconium and Hafnium - ScienceDirect

1997-01-01  Zirconium's main minerals are zircon and baddeleyite. The viable methods of producing titanium, zirconium, and hafnium from oxide ores encounter two problems. In the first place, reduction with carbon is not possible because of the formation of intractable carbides, and even reduction with Na, Ca, or Mg is unlikely to remove all the oxygen.
