Molybdenum Oxide Services

Molybdenum oxide is a chemical compound with the formula MoO3. This compound is produced on the largest scale of any molybdenum compound. It is an intermediate in the production of molybdenum metal. It is also an important industrial catalyst. Molybdenum trioxide occurs as the rare mineral molybdite.  Molybdenum trioxide is used to manufacture molybdenum metal, which serves as an additive to steel and corrosion-resistant alloys.

For a complete listing of molybdenum oxide specifications, see ASTM A144.


Sampling for Molybdenum Oxide

Contact Us Today

McCreath Laboratories will send trained, experienced technicians to take a represented sample for you.  Whether in bulk or containers, our technicians have the training, tools and experience to collect a representative sample, ensuring that all subsequent laboratory testing is accurate and reliable.  With our mobile crushing units, molybdenum oxide in lump form can be partially processed on site per the ISO and ASTM standards, increasing efficiency and reducing the amount of material taken off-site.

Sampling by McCreath Labs

McCreath Laboratories will employ both classical and advanced in-house techniques in the analysis of molybdenum oxide.  The techniques have been verified through the use of certified reference materials and some are adopted directly from ASTM or ISO standards.  A typical molybdenum oxide analysis would be done as follows:
