    The use of manganese in industries

    Manganese is a chemical element with a chemical symbol (Mn) atomic number (25). It can be found as a free element in nature (often it is combined with iron) or in many minerals.

    Manganese is a metal of great industrial importance, especially in the field of stainless steel (stainless steel).

    Manganese is an element found in abundance in many places of the earth’s crust. Although you have it there are only united with other chemical elements. 

    Most uses of manganese are restricted to the manufacture of alloys and chemical compounds.

    The use of manganese in industries

    One of the most important industries is the manufacture of alloys with aluminum, iron and copper, and the result is more solid Steel industry,

    electronic circuits and metal tools in kitchens, nails and shaving tools Fireworks, fluorescent lights, some food, reinforced concrete, bricks, road paving, and the manufacture of metal basins, as well as in the manufacture of soap and shampoo.

    In the manufacture of tin foil And the manufacture of many aluminum alloys It is also used in the manufacture of glass and ceramics to earn them a beautiful violet color as well as in the manufacture of fertilizers And enter in the manufacture of antacids It also enters 3.5% in the coins industry

    as a rule, are most commonly used for the removal of manganese and iron. A byproduct of removing manganese is the removal of radium. This happens because radium bonds readily to manganese. To assist in the removal of radium, some systems use the addition of hydrous manganese oxide (HMO) to increase co-precipitation of radium during the manganese removal process. HMO is added to the water upstream of the filter to attract radium to the manganese oxide precipitates. These manganese precipitates, which hold radium, are filtered from the water along with existing iron and manganese. Through HMO co-precipitation, radium is strained from the water as a solid then washed to drain when the filter backwashes. Systems utilizing co-precipitation through HMO require regular backwashing. The backwash water from this method of treatment contains radium-bearing waste. Compliance with local disposal requirements for radioactive solids must be adhered to when designing and applying these systems for radium control.
