Sodium molybdate is white diamond crystal. The production processes are as following: to roast molybdenum concentrate can obtain molybdenum trioxide, to use alkali liquor for sodium molybdate leaching, after filtration, concentrated, cooled, centrifuged and dried to obtain the finished product. Na2MoO4 mainly used for manufacturing alkaloids, ink, fertilizers, molybdenum red pigment and light fastness pigment precipitation agent, catalyst and molybdenum salt, and it can also be used to manufacture fire retardant and pollution-free cold water system metal inhibitor. Besides, it can as plating zinc, polishing agents and chemical reagents.
