Molybdenum trioxide products are mainly used in the production of molybdenum-containing catalysts necessary for the petrochemical industry. The market share of molybdenum chemical products is about 50%. In the current global economic downturn, most downstream customers of molybdenum products have been seriously impacted. Enterprises in the molybdenum industry are in the dilemma of poor product sales and sharp price decline.
However, as the lifeblood of industry and economy, the petrochemical industry has remained stable. The demand for high purity molybdenum trioxide has remained steady. A raw material for catalyst preparation necessary for the petrochemical industry has remained steady. The annual sales volume has increased to 3,000 t. The methods for testing the solubility of high purity molybdenum trioxide products for catalysts are mainly defined into alkali solution and acid solution.
The actual solubility testing methods are defined into ammonia solution, phosphoric acid solution, and basic salt solution. The solubility of high purity molybdenum trioxide products for catalysts was analyzed and studied. Therefore, it provided specific technical support for the production practice of high purity molybdenum trioxide products.
The solubility testing methods of three kinds of high purity molybdenum trioxide products used as catalysts are studied. It is confirmed that there are differences in the solubility testing methods of high purity molybdenum trioxide products used as catalysts. A dissolubility test method is qualified. The other dissolubility test methods are also qualified. The solubility of high purity molybdenum trioxide for a catalyst is related to the calcination process. Therefore, different solubility testing methods correspond to different high purity products. In the process of high purity molybdenum trioxide production. It is not only about the operability and adaptability of the production should be tested. It is also the economy of different processes for the production of high purity molybdenum trioxide products for catalysts should be calculated.
