Plasma Atomized Spherical Metal Powders

PyroGenesis’ Plasma Atomization Process allows PyroGenesis to produce high purity spherical metal powders. Many of today’s reactive metals cannot be transformed into high purity spherical powders; especially not in the finer size cuts such as -45μm/+15μm. With its extensive plasma expertise, PyroGenesis is able to convert many metals and alloys into high purity spherical powders as its plasma torches use argon gas and the reactor is backfilled with argon. This ensures the powders produced are not exposed to any oxygen during the production process and as a result, PyroGenesis is able to produce powders with extremely low interstitial (ELI) such as Ti 6Al-4V ELI. Our standard offering includes commercially pure titanium (CPTi), grades 1, 2, and 3, and Ti 6Al-4V, grades 5 and 23. Our standard cuts are listed below however customary offerings can be made.

The video above represents an independent third-party analysis of the properties of PyroGenesis Additive’ titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) powders in comparison to a well-known titanium powder supplier.
This third-party analyzed common powder properties such as sphericity, density, and purity, using a cutting-edge digital imaging technique. During this process, PyroGenesis’ titanium powders were scanned using a Nikon XT H 225 X-ray mCT system. The volume was then reconstructed with a voxel size of 1.1 µm3 and analyzed with the Dragonfly V3 powder analysis routine.
Results show that PyroGenesis Additive powders are highly spherical (in yellow on the video), and have little-to-no porosity.
