The solubility of tungsten in molten iron

Scientific Methods And Properties Of Powder Materials


The solubility of tungsten in iron has been determined at 1560–1620°C by successively saturating molten iron with tungsten while ensuring a uniform distribution of the content over the height. The temperature dependence of the solubility over that temperature range is described by a Schröder equation: Cs=(3.94±0.11)×103e-(84.4±0.4)/RT.
