The secretary general of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) said recently that US economic sanctions against Venezuela have affected global energy supplies.
He told Venezuelan media that the ECONOMIC sanctions imposed by the United States on Venezuela and other countries have seriously affected the ability to produce and export oil worldwide and violated the right of people in other countries to use energy.
Venezuela has one of the largest proven crude oil reserves in the world, but U.S. sanctions have made it impossible for Venezuela’s oil industry to consistently export reliable energy to the world, he said. Despite this, he highly appreciated the efforts of the Venezuelan oil industry to maintain tungsten oxide, tungsten oxide overview, tungsten oxide application, tungsten oxide supplier, tungsten oxide price are expected to increase in the future.
Tungsten oxide overview
Tungsten trioxide is a powder metallurgy raw material for the production of cemented carbide and tungsten products. According to the national standard (GB/T 3457-1998), it is divided into two types, namely tungsten trioxide (referred to as yellow tungsten), molecular formula is WO3, and blue tungsten oxide (referred to as blue tungsten, is a mixed tungsten oxide), molecular formula W20O58. Yellow tungsten is light yellow crystalline powder, blue tungsten is dark blue or blue-black crystalline powder.
Preparation method of tungsten oxide
1. Ammonium tungstate method: The tungsten concentrate is hydrolyzed by sodium hydroxide, neutralized with hydrochloric acid, and then reacted with ammonium chloride to generate ammonium tungstate, which is then added with hydrochloric acid for acid hydrolysis to generate tungstic acid, which is then decomposed by roasting. , pulverized to obtain tungsten trioxide.
2. Hydrochloric acid decomposition method of tungstate. The saturated aqueous solution of sodium tungstate Na2WO4, calcium tungstate CaWO4 and other tungstate salts is heated, and the solution is slowly added dropwise into 2-3 times excess boiling concentrated hydrochloric acid by molar ratio. According to the above reaction, yellow tungstic acid is precipitated. At this time, if the dripping speed is too fast or the liquid temperature drops, suspension or colloidal precipitation is likely to be formed, which brings difficulties to the next treatment. After the dropwise addition, heating was continued on a water bath for 1 h, and the precipitate became easy to filter. After standing, it was washed several times with 5% ammonium nitrate aqueous solution to completely remove Cl-. After filtration, it is dried at 120 °C, and finally heated to 600 °C, the tungstic acid is completely dehydrated and becomes tungsten trioxide.
3. Thermal decomposition of ammonium paratungstate. Put ammonium paratungstate (NH4) 10W12O41·11H2O purified by recrystallization method into a porcelain crucible, and when heated to above about 400 ℃, ammonia volatilizes to obtain tungsten trioxide.
Application of tungsten oxide WO3 powder
Tungsten oxide has a variety of uses in daily life. It is commonly used in the manufacture of phosphors for industrial X-ray screens and tungstates for fire-resistant fabrics. Due to its rich yellow element, tungsten oxide is also used as a pigment in ceramics and paints. In addition, other application examples of tungsten trioxide are as follows:
Tungsten oxide is mainly used in the production of tungsten powder and tungsten carbide powder by calcination reduction, and is further used in the production of cemented carbide products, such as the manufacture of tools and molds.
Tungsten oxide can also be used to manufacture pure tungsten products, tungsten rods, tungsten wires, tungsten electrodes; and use counterweights and radiation shielding materials.
In industrial production, a small amount is also used as a colorant for yellow ceramics. In the shipbuilding industry, tungsten oxide is used as an important anti-corrosion paint and coating material.
Tungsten oxide has been used to produce electrochromic windows, smart windows. These windows are electrically switchable glass that varies in light transmittance and applied voltage. This allows users to tint their windows by changing the heat or light.
