Investigations into Recycling Zinc from Used Metal Oxide Varistors via pH Selective Leaching: Characterization, Leaching, and Residue Analysis
Metal oxide varistors (MOVs) are a type of resistor with significantly nonlinear current-voltage characteristics commonly used in power lines to protect against overvoltages. If a proper recyclingExpand

Recycling Zinc from Metal Oxide Varistors Through Leaching and Cementation of Cobalt and Nickel
Metal oxide varistors (MOVs) are housed in a surge arrestor and composed of zinc oxide (>90 wt%) and other metal oxides such as antimony, bismuth, cobalt, manganese, and nickel. Due to the highExpand

Thermal Analysis of Surrogate Simulated Molten Salts with Metal Chloride Impurities for Electrorefining Used Nuclear Fuel
This project is a fundamental study to measure thermal properties (liquidus, solidus, phase transformation, and enthalpy) of molten salt systems of interest to electrorefining operations, which areExpand

Investigations into high temperature separation of antimony from metal oxide varistors
Very little research has been done into methods for recycling antimony from end of life products. This study investigates separation of antimony from metal oxide varistors (MOVs), where antimony isExpand

Aluminum electroplating on steel from a fused bromide electrolyte
A quaternary bromide bath (LiBr-KBr-CsBr-AlBr3) was used to electro-coat aluminum on steel substrates. The electrolyte was prepared by the addition of AlBr3 into the eutectic LiBr-KBr-CsBr melt. AExpand

Thermal Characterization of Molten Salt Systems
The phase stability of molten salts in an electrorefiner (ER) may be adversely affected by the buildup of sodium, fission products, and transuranics in the electrolyte. Potential situations that needExpand

Recycling of Antimony and Zinc from Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs)
Surge arrestors are an important part of power and rail systems because they protect from overvoltages due to transients such as lightning. Within a surge arrestors lies the metal oxide varistorsExpand
