Selection of reducing crucible material for Rare E

by Izzy X. Product specialist
Rare earth fluorides, metals and slag have strong chemical activity, so the crucible material used must be resistant to corrosion by halogens and their compounds at high temperatures
Recommended Features
  • High purity zirconia No higher than 1700 , stable in vacuum and inert atmosphere
  • Alumina, Silicon Oxide Reacts with molten metal at high temperatures
  • Tantalum Metal Stable in vacuum and inert gas before 1700 , but it has obvious effect with scandium and lutetium
  • Niobium Metal 1% -2% dissolved in rare earth metal at 1500 in vacuum and inert gas paper
  • Molybdenum Metal Stable before 1400 in inert gas

Tungsten Metal
Slowly corroded at high temperature in an inert atmosphere, but stable to halides
Graphite, Carbon
Slow action on rare earth metals, but stable to halides
Cerium Sulfide
Stable to cerium at high temperature and halide at 1000
Titanium nitride (70%) + titanium oxide (30%)
