China’s first full-process DCS production line for tantalum and niobium smelting was completed
On June 26, the key construction project of Guangdong Province – Guangdong Rising Rare Metal Optoelectronic New Materials Co., Ltd. (referred to as Rising New Materials) relocation and upgrading project (Phase I) trial production activities, in Qingyuan Yingde High-tech Technology Industrial Development Zone held. Rising New Materials has built the first full-process DCS production line for tantalum and niobium smelting in the country with the fastest construction speed of projects of the same scale in the same industry in China.
Rising New Materials was formerly known as the “723 Factory” of the former Military Industry Bureau of the Ministry of Metallurgy, which was founded in 1960, and is now a key backbone enterprise in Guangdong Province, Guangdong Rising Holding Group Co., Ltd. (referred to as Rising Group). ) is a state-owned wholly-owned subsidiary of Guangdong Rising Nonferrous Metals Group Co., Ltd. (abbreviated as Nonferrous Metals Group), a first-level enterprise, and is one of the earliest enterprises engaged in tantalum and niobium smelting in my country.
Break through the technical problem of “stuck neck”
In the new plant, a variety of raw materials for tantalum and niobium products have attracted the attention of visitors, among which are missiles Rare high-tech samples such as fairings, SAW filters, etc.
Rising New Materials has a complete range of tantalum and niobium products. The R&D and production capabilities of high-purity niobium oxide, high-purity tantalum powder, and high-purity potassium fluorotantalate are in the leading domestic and international first-class level, and some of the competitive products It has been successfully applied to my country’s aerospace engineering. Tantalum niobium is an important functional material with stable chemical and physical properties, high melting point, good processability and strong corrosion resistance. It is widely used in high-end electronics, aerospace, cemented carbide, superconducting materials, chemical industry, Optical, medical and other fields are national strategic metals. With the vigorous development of strategic emerging industries such as global 5G construction, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and big data, the application prospects will be even broader.
It plays an important role in Qingyuan Yingde building a new material industry cluster
Rising New Materials Relocation and Upgrade Project (Phase I) in 2020 Construction started on December 18, and the main equipment was successfully tested on December 18, 2021. On June 16, 2022, the first batch of experimental products, potassium fluorotantalate, was successfully crystallized. On June 26, the whole line was put into trial production. The construction of this project has created the fastest speed of construction of the same scale project in the same industry in China.
“Rising New Materials plays an important role in Qingyuan Yingde building a new material industry cluster. I believe that Yingde, a hot spot for investment, will definitely bring expected returns to investors.” Zhang Yang, Secretary of Yingde Municipal Party Committee Bin said.
The production process technology and product quality of the new factory of Rising New Materials have achieved an all-round upgrade compared to the original Guangzhou Conghua Tantalum and Niobium Smelter before the relocation. Among them, a number of major equipment produced by hydrometallurgy are used for the first time in domestic counterparts, and are expected to provide useful exploration for the upgrading and development of my country’s tantalum and niobium hydrometallurgy equipment. These include building the country’s first full-process DCS production line for tantalum and niobium smelting, equipped with industry-leading production equipment such as ring roller mills, modular extraction systems, and electric heated roller kilns;
Expected annual revenue of 900 million yuan after reaching production
Qiu Zhenhuai, chairman of Guangdong Rising Nonferrous Metals Group Co., Ltd., said that Rising New Materials Project (one Period) was successfully completed and put into trial production, creating the fastest construction speed for projects of the same scale in the same industry in China, and built the country’s first full-process DCS production line for tantalum and niobium smelting. A landmark event. He emphasized that after the project (phase one) is put into production, it is expected to achieve an annual revenue of about 900 million yuan and a tax of about 50 million yuan. Nonferrous Metals Group will stand at the height of the development of the national tantalum and niobium industry, plan the construction and development of Rising New Materials as a whole, actively promote the construction of the second and third phases, and strive to build a relatively complete process from wet smelting to semiconductor wafers. , The tantalum and niobium new material manufacturing and processing industry chain for deep processing of metal products, and strive to become the “chain master” enterprise of my country’s tantalum and niobium industry chain as soon as possible.
It is reported that the remote relocation and upgrading project of Guangsheng New Materials was launched in June 2017. The total planned investment of the project is 1.02 billion yuan and the construction land is 356 mu. It is divided into three phases of construction. The annual revenue is about 1.3 billion yuan and the tax is about 70 million yuan. (Dai Chaowen, correspondent of all media reporter Cao Jing)
