Submicron Tungsten Powder Prepared through the Circulatory Oxidization-Reduction Method
Tungstic oxide is prepared with pure ammonium paratungstate in the air. And then Tungsten powder is obtained with tungstic oxide through deoxidation in the hydrogen gas (Rate of purity: 99.99 %, dew point: -40 °C), and tungsten powder is oxidized in the air. Tungstic oxide is reduced into tungsten powder in the hydrogen gas. The above routes are repeated. The samples are characterized by the laser particle size distribution measuring instrument and the electron probe scan instrument. The results show that submicron tungsten powder is obtained through circulatory oxidation twice and reductiuon three times. The volume percentage of the particle size distribution of submicron tungsten powder between 0.1 μm and 0.5 μm is 94.81 %.
