Magnesium production, vacuum thermal reduction, molten salt electrolysis
Speech Title: Technical status of magnesium production and automation magnesium production technology
Abstract: Lightweight magnesium-based materials have attracted worldwide attention because of their high specific strength and specific stiffness, good vibration reduction, magnetic shielding, corrosion resistance, and excellent workability and recovery, which are imagined to have great applications in automobile, aerospace and medical purposes. Magnesium is produced by two principal processes: electrolysis and thermal reduction(silicothermic, aluminothermic, carbothermal and CaC2 thermal reduction). Pidgeon process as one of the silicothermic processes is the mainly technology for Mg production. However, it is a semi-continuous and high labor-intensity process. Magnesium produced under atmospheric pressure is a promising process to achieve continuous and automatic Mg production. Several continuous and automatic technologies for Mg production are introduced.
