Abstract:
      Potassium rhenate was obtained from the solution after precipitation of tungsten and molybdenum by potassium chloride precipitation reaction. Then potassium rhenate solution was converted into perrhenic acid solution by ion exchange method. Finally, high purity ammonium rhenate was obtained by ammonia neutralization - concentrated crystallization - recrystallization. The results show that KCl solid is added to the solution after precipitation of W and Mo, and then concentrated to precipitate KReO4 white crystal. The contents of main impurities Na, Ca, Fe and Cl in potassium rhenate are less than 1%, especially W and Mo are less than 0.1%, and the crystallization rate of Re can reach 94% ~ 98%. K is removed by dynamic method with C160 (H+ type) resin. When the pH of KReO4 solution is neutral and the flow rate of feed is 2 BVs.h-, the K + penetration capacity and saturation capacity of C160 resin are 117.865 g.L-1 and 128.385 g.L-1, respectively, and the utilization rate of resin reaches 91.81%. The concentrations of K, Na, Ca, Fe, W, Mo and Mg in the obtained pure HReO4 solution are all below 0.5 mg.L-1. The HReO4 solution is neutralized by adding high - grade pure ammonia, controlling the end-point pH to 7 ~ 8, and then concentrated and crystallized with one recrystallization. The purity of the obtained ammonium rhenate is more than 99.99%, of which the SEM morphology is dendritic.
