Preparation of titanium oxide powder of prescribed composition


A mathematical model is suggested for the process of titanium chip impregnation with oxygen. The model is based on the assumption that it is possible to ignore the effect of a thin surface oxide film on oxygen impregnation of α-Ti solid solution. The process of producing TiO powder with a particle size of less than 100 µm has been optimized for the minimum expenditure of energy.
