Smelting of Rare Earth Metals

Smelting of Rare Earth Metals 1

Rare earth has become an important element to improve product structure, increase scientific and technological content, and promote technological progress in the industry due to its good effect and low dosage. It has been widely used in metallurgy, petrochemical, glass ceramics, agriculture and new materials. Rare earth metals are generally divided into mixed rare earth metals and single rare earth metals. The composition of the mixed rare earth metal is close to the original rare earth composition in the ore, and the single metal is a metal separated and purified from each rare earth. Using rare earth oxides (except the oxides of Sm and Tm) as raw materials, due to their large heat of formation and high stability, it is difficult to reduce to a single metal by conventional metallurgical methods. Therefore, the common raw materials used to produce rare earth metals today are their chlorides and fluorides.
