Masters Theses

Abstract

"It is known that the addition of titanium to certain types of brasses and bronzes gives them additional valuable properties. The copper-titanium master alloy which is the natural addition agent for making these brasses can not, however, be used if it has been made aluminothermically. It appears that aluminum in the master alloy makes it useless for the above purpose. It should, therefore, be worth while to determine if it is possible to produce a copper-titanium alloy by some method which eliminates the contamination by aluminum, and which would give a copper-titanium which could be used with advantage as an addition-agent for brasses. The problem of this thesis is to investigate the possibilities of producing a copper-titanium alloy from rutile-copper-oxide mixtures by reduction with magnesium, to study the effect of addition agents to form a suitable slag, and to investigate the feasability [sic] of using an inert atmosphere in the reduction vessel"--Introduction, page 1.
