Molten metal is separated into small droplets and frozen rapidly before the drops come into contact with each other or with a solid surface. Typically, a thin stream of molten metal is disintegrated by subjecting it to the impact of high-energy jets of gas or liquid. In principle, the technique is applicable to all metals that can be melted and is used commercially for the production of precious metals such as gold, silver, and non-precious metals such as iron; copper; alloy steels; brass; bronze, etc.
Making Metal Powder The Powder Metallurgy (PM) process is making metal powders. The metal powder water atomizer is used to produce high quality and homogenous master grains and alloy grains, and also the powder, starting from raw material molten by induction heating in a protective atmosphere, and then When casting the powder, will adopt the high pressured water gun to break the molten metal into fine particles. Mostly, used in metal refining industry. The Gas Atomizer is characterized by small environmental pollution, high degree of ball-shape powder, low oxygen content and fast cooling rate and so on. Through many years’ constant innovation and improvement, our company has updated our gas atomization powder-manufacturing technique and technology several times in order to produce metal and alloy powders of high performance. Currently, the technology has become the leading factor to support and promote atomization powder-manufacturing equipment, new material research and new technology development. The operating principle of atomizing equipment refers to the powder-manufacturing process that smelting metal or alloy under certained condition with metal liquid poured obliquely to heat preservation crucible flowing out through liquid diversion mouth (downward), and takes advantage of the high pressure gases of nozzle to crush metal liquid into large amounts of fine and small liquid drop; The flying liquid drops solidify into ball-shape or sub ball-shape particles and thus complete the whole powder-manufacturing process. Mostly, used in metal 3D printing industry.
