Coagulation of its internal nuclei was slower, so the internal condensation microstructure was greater . The crystallization time was relatively longer, resulting in a relatively adequate peritectal reaction, which would cause the consumption of Cu3Sn and Sn. Similarly, the coagulation of the drops of approximately 71 μm was similar to that of the 37 μm drops, due to their higher volume, although they were closer to the nozzle.
Performance in this narrow range, therefore, has a major impact on dust production costs. Atomization is the most commercially used process to produce the highest tonnage of metal powders. High pressure water spraying has proven to be a viable and economical process for achieving fine particle size distributions for low alloy, stainless steel, and metal powders.
Meanwhile, the growth of the η phase was necessary to access the hypothermic fluid. The Cu6Sn5 envelope grew at the expense of the Cu3Sn primary phase, which demonstrated the appearance of the peritectural reaction below the peritectural temperature. Although crystallization was very rapid in the nebulization process, the previous analysis has a high reference value and corresponds to the actual experimental results . A hydride generation and atomization system for AAS In a hydride-generating atomizer, samples are generally diluted and acidified before mixing with a hydride source such as sodium borohirdide. A volatile hydride containing the sample is generated and brought into the atomization chamber by inert gas. During the atomization process, the sample is released by heat into the atoms, releasing the sample from the hydride compound.
The metallic powders obtained by gas atomization offer a perfect spherical shape combined with a high level of cleaning. Most dual fluid atomizers use the kinetic energy of a flowing air stream to break a liquid beam or plate into ligaments and then boron nitride ceramic release it. Atomizers of this type are commonly known as “airblast” or “air-assist”, the main difference is the amount of air used and the flow. Air support atomizers are characterized by the use of a relatively small amount of high-speed air.
In this process, fuel at extremely high pressure is forced through a small jet opening to break it into a fine spray. From here, the mist mixes with air and then evaporates in a thin shape suitable for use by an internal combustion engine. We can control the atomization and the fan pattern by pressing the horn air and the medium air. By increasing the horn air and keeping the atomizing air constant, the particle diameter becomes slightly smaller and the spray fan pattern widens and widens. If the horn air is constant and we increase the central atomization air, the drops become smaller and the spray pattern is narrower, but the drip rate is considerably faster. Figure 5 shows the internal morphology of the microstructure of the powders with different diameters after engraving with hydrochloric acid / alcohol solution for 15 s.
