Conclusions

A new apparatus has been developed for the centrifugal atomization of metals and alloys with particle cooling in a liquid medium. The apparatus, which is much smaller in size than the conventional atomization units, enables alloys of various chemical compositions to be atomized uncontaminated by metal particles from previous heats. Powders produced by this process are characterized by a dense, disperse structure and a low oxygen content. A small-sized unit has been designed and constructed for the centrifugal atomization of air- and vacuum-melted metals and alloys.
