Molybdenum wire is used in the construction of power tube grids and support structures which require high temperature strength, low vapor pressure and low thermal expansion. High temperature vacuum and hydrogen atmosphere furnaces also employ Molybdenum rod and Molybdenum wire to form resistance heating elements. Molybdenum wire is also used as a mount for Tungsten lamp filaments (which operate at temperatures in the range of 2400° C); the Molybdenum wire acts as both a heat sink and a support while lowering the temperature at the support junction.
Ed Fagan Inc. stocks Molybdenum wire in a range of diameters from 0.001” to 0.125” and can be cut to your length, tolerance, concentricity, and straightness requirements. Typical uses include:
Ed Fagan Inc. also stocks Tungsten and Molybdenum Rod in a wide range of sizes for applications requiring larger diameter materials.
