Ferromolybdenum

Uses

Ferromolybdenum can be used in any melting process to add molybdenum to all types of iron and steel, and is supplied in a range of sizes for furnace or ladle addition. The recovery should be substantially 100 % if used correctly. For optimum recoveries with ladle additions, ferromolybdenum should be added after the molten metal has covered the bottom of the ladle and before it is three quarters full.

Climax Molybdenum Company, a subsidiary of Freeport-McMoRan, also offers Roasted Molybdenite Concentrates in powder as well as in briquettes.
