The Decomposition Of Calcium Tungstate And Synthetic Scheelite With Hydrochloric Acid, Robert R. Beebe May 1953

The Decomposition Of Calcium Tungstate And Synthetic Scheelite With Hydrochloric Acid, Robert R. Beebe

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The decomposition of scheelite with hydrochloric acid was studied under conditions of variable acid concentration, time and temperature. The reactions were traced by weigh­ing material untransformed and, in some cases, by analyzing the transformation products.


The Benefication Of A Low-Grade, Montana Scheelite Ore, Walter G. Parker May 1953

The Benefication Of A Low-Grade, Montana Scheelite Ore, Walter G. Parker

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The increasing importance of tungsten as an industrial metal and the recent discoveries of extensive deposits of low-grade tungsten ores in Montana led to the investigation which is reported in this paper. The purpose of this investigation was to determine if a saleable concentrate could be obtained from one of these low-grade, Montana scheelite ores.


Flotation Of Huebnerite, Henry Albright May 1952

Flotation Of Huebnerite, Henry Albright

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The development of suitable beneficiation processes for treating domestic low-grade tungsten ores is a problem now facing the mineral industry. While we are now consuming more tungsten than normally because of the defense program, we are no longer able to import ores from the world's principal source, China. The problem then, is to increase our domestic production so as to ac­quire a greater degree of self-sufficiency.


The Birdie Mine Tungsten Deposit Butte Mining District, Silverbow County, Montana, Bernard A. Fahm May 1952

The Birdie Mine Tungsten Deposit Butte Mining District, Silverbow County, Montana, Bernard A. Fahm

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The importance of tungsten has encouraged the search for minerals of this metal, and consequently new deposits have been discovered, and known deposits have been re-examined. Western Montana has rather widespread deposits if low-grade types are also considered. Many deposits were known long ago, but abandoned because the use of tungsten was still in its beginning stage and therefore little attention was given to this type of mineral.


A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt May 1948

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The term diffusion means an equalization or homogenization of diverse materials. Specifically ap­plied to metals, diffusion is the interchange of atoms. It is, in effect, an invasion of one crystal lattice by the atoms of one or more other crystal lattices. Therefore, the study of diffusion must involve the geometry and physics of crystal lattices as well as their energies.


The Corrosion Resistance Of Iron-Tin Compacts As Produced By Powder Metallurgy, Robert W. Gambill May 1947

The Corrosion Resistance Of Iron-Tin Compacts As Produced By Powder Metallurgy, Robert W. Gambill

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The art of Powder Metallurgy deals with the preparation of metal powders and their utilization. As a more pertinent definition, the following has been suggest­ed: "Powder Metallurgy is the art of producing metal powders and shaped objects from individual, mixed, or alloyed metal powders, with or without the inclusion of non-metallic consti­tuents".


The Electrodeposition Of Copper-Cobalt Alloys, Richard L. Dunn Oct 1944

The Electrodeposition Of Copper-Cobalt Alloys, Richard L. Dunn

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An attempt was made to deposit a 50:50 copper-cobalt alloy from various sulfate electrolytes. No true 50:50 alloy was obtained but various mixtures of cobalt and copper rich crystals were deposited.


Production Of Iron-Tin Compacts By Powder Metallurgy And A Synopsis Of Their Principle Properties, Matt C. Andrews Feb 1944

Production Of Iron-Tin Compacts By Powder Metallurgy And A Synopsis Of Their Principle Properties, Matt C. Andrews

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This thesis is concerned primarily with the production of metal powder compacts of iron and tin. In producing these compacts, the effects of process­ing variables on some of the essential properties of the pellets made were investigated.


Porosity And Oil Absorption Properties Of Metal Compacts Of Copper - Tin - Graphite, Benjamin F. Mills May 1942

Porosity And Oil Absorption Properties Of Metal Compacts Of Copper - Tin - Graphite, Benjamin F. Mills

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Powder metallurgy, the most recent innovation in met­allurgical process, is not a new art; although not until recently did it become a matter of general interest, this being due not only to the products formed but also to the possibilities of future developments. The manufacture and application of metal powders is now beginning to take a position as a recognized part of the science of metallurgy.


Measurements Of The Magnetic Permeabilities Of The Iron-Manganese Alloy System Prepared By The Methods Of Powder Metallurgy, O. Cihad Onbulak May 1941

Measurements Of The Magnetic Permeabilities Of The Iron-Manganese Alloy System Prepared By The Methods Of Powder Metallurgy, O. Cihad Onbulak

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Powder metallurgy is a branch of metallurgy which produces metallic compacts in their final forms by means of pressure and heat-treatment from the pow­ders. The products of powder metallurgy are being used in our daily lives quite often. For example, the tungsten wires in the electric bulbs to the silver-tin fillings of our teeth.


The Concentration Of Scheelite From The Gold Concentrates Of The Jardine Mining Company, John H. Huxley May 1941

The Concentration Of Scheelite From The Gold Concentrates Of The Jardine Mining Company, John H. Huxley

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Purpose of this thesis was to investigate the possibility of concentrating scheelite from Wilfley table gold concentrates from the mill of the Jardine Mining Company; and to determine whether such concentration is economically feasible and the product of sufficiently high grade to meet commercial specifications for such a product.


Pegmatites In Southwestern Montana, Ora Rostad May 1941

Pegmatites In Southwestern Montana, Ora Rostad

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Little has been written on pegmatites in Montana except in conjunction with reports on mining districts. This subject was chosen as a senior thesis to see what facts could be ascertained re­garding pegmatites alone, and an attempt has been made by the writer to assemble all written material on pegmatites in southwestern Montana, and to study specimens from those that could be reached or from which specimens were available.


The Testing And Concentration Of A Tungsten Ore, Turdat S. Simone May 1940

The Testing And Concentration Of A Tungsten Ore, Turdat S. Simone

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

At the present time the principal uses for tungsten lie in the manufacture of ferro-alloys and tungsten steels. Due to it’s hardening and strengthening characteristics it holds an important position among steel hardening metals. The great rush for it’s production during the World War years clearly points to it’s importance in the manufacture of armament.


Magnesium - Tellurium By Powder Methods, George Gale May 1938

Magnesium - Tellurium By Powder Methods, George Gale

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Today considerable work is being done in the compressed metal powder field which is gradually ob­taining prominence as a valuable branch of metallurgy. The mass of data, however, has led to many different ideas on the results of sintering.
