A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell May 1953

A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The electrolyte used in the commercial production of electrolytic zinc from zinc sulphate solutions contains small amounts of impurities each of which has its own effects upon the process. Impurities such as antimony, cobalt, nickel, and iron tend to lower the current efficiency while other impurities such as chlorine, fluorine, and nitrates tend to increase the corrosion of the lead anodes and thereby increase the lead tenor of the zinc deposit.


Benefication Of An Oxidized Lead Ore From The Franklin Mine Lewis And Clark County, Jack D. Mclenegan May 1949

Benefication Of An Oxidized Lead Ore From The Franklin Mine Lewis And Clark County, Jack D. Mclenegan

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This thesis is concerned with the beneficiation of an oxidized lead ore. Emphasis was placed upon concentration by flotation rather than by gravity methods, although some investigation was made with the Wilfley shaking table. The concentration of lead minerals received most consideration in the problem, but wherever possible attempts were made to increase the silver and gold concentration along with the lead.


The Electroformation Of Lithium-Lead Alloys From Molten Electrolytes, Thomas Prater May 1941

The Electroformation Of Lithium-Lead Alloys From Molten Electrolytes, Thomas Prater

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An attempt was made to make lead-lithium alloys by electrodeposition of lithium using a molten bath and a molten lead cathode.The variables taken into consideration were: composition of the melt, temperature of the melt, and current density. The purpose of changing these factors was to determine what effect each had on the current efficiency.


Structure Of Eutectics, Dilip K. Das May 1939

Structure Of Eutectics, Dilip K. Das

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The present paper is a result of work done on the study of structures of eutectics of a certain eutectic-forming binary systems. In this research work no systems with intermetallic compounds have been studied.


A Study Of Solders, John D. Prater May 1939

A Study Of Solders, John D. Prater

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this paper is to furnish a qualitative method of comparing the degree of wetting of various solders upon different plate metals when several fluxes are used.


Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass., V. Kent Loughran May 1938

Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass., V. Kent Loughran

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The reclamation of metals from scrap is becoming increasingly important in the metallurgical industry. Copper, because it does not corrode readily and is electronegative to most common metals, is peculiarly adapted to reclamation.


The Effects Of Lime On The Amalgamation Of Gold., Rollien R. Wells May 1936

The Effects Of Lime On The Amalgamation Of Gold., Rollien R. Wells

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An amalgam is an alloy of mercury with other metals, and amalgamation is the art of making or forming amalgams. In metallurgical language the word is limited to the means adopted for the recovery of gold and silver from their ores by the use of mercury.


A Metallurgical Study Of Gold Ores, Alfred A. Bloom May 1935

A Metallurgical Study Of Gold Ores, Alfred A. Bloom

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Gold is widely distributed in the earth's crust in small quantities. Gold is found in nature in two forms; the element itself and the compound gold telluride. In all cases, silver in some proportion is an alloying constituent.


The Leaching Of Electrodeposition Of Iron, Emmett G. Simmons May 1933

The Leaching Of Electrodeposition Of Iron, Emmett G. Simmons

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Electrolytic iron as deposited is brittle and therefore must be annealed. After annealing, the material is ductile and closely resembles copper in its behavior under work. It is claimed to be more resistant to corrosion than dead soft iron. It also has the advantage of corroding uniformly ( or­dinary soft iron develops pin holes which shorten its life considerably).

The extreme purity of electrolytic iron namely makes it very suitable as a base metal for alloys. Its ductility opens up a field for use in the manufacture of cold rolled strip, seamless tubes, and wire.
