Particle Size and Shape Analysis the Key to Success in Metal Powder Production
The particle size distribution is one of the important parameters for characterisation of quality of metal powders. Specific material properties such as ability to flow, reactivity as well as compressibility and its hardening potentials – hence the most important characteristics of sintered metals - are determined by the size distribution. The correct particle size distribution is the key to best product quality in atomisation processes of aluminium, milling of pure metals and other processes.
