BLUE POWER Atomisers AU 1000 – AU 12000

Overview BLUE POWER Atomisers AU 1000 – AU 12000

Powder particle size for every request

The BLUE POWER atomisation plants have been particularly designed for the flexible and economic production of small-scale metal powder batches. Traditional large-scale production plants cannot provide this economic advantage. Frequently changing alloys in production require high cleaning efforts to avoid cross contamination. Particularly in R&D or precious metal powder applications small amounts of various kinds of powder are frequently required, often also new types of alloy powder not available on the market. Especially fast developing applications like SLM and MIM require more and more specialised metal powder.

High quality metal powders

Our atomisers produce spherical, flowable metal powders with mean particle sizes between ~1 and 200 µm for e.g. additive manufacturing, soldering or foam sintering processes, as well as MIM and other powder metallurgy procedures. To obtain specific metal powder characteristics, the  AU machines work with different easy-to-change nozzle systems: free fall and close coupled atomisation nozzles. Flow optimisation in the spray chamber ensures an increased powder quality (avoidance of satellites).

AU series – advantages

For a wide spectrum of alloys , e. g. Ag, Au, Cu, Sn, Fe, Co, Ni, Pd …

Inductive heating
in graphite crucibles, depending on the alloy additionally with ceramic insert crucibles, up to 2000°C

Four different versions offering crucible volumes from 1.5 – 25 l
AU 1000, AU 3000, AU 12000, AU 25000

Anti-oxidation features
The AU machines offer the possibility of oxidation-free processing in the closed-chamber machine by means of de-gassing, vacuum and
protective gas features.

Gas flow optimisation
Increase of powder quality by gas flow optimisation in the spray chamber (avoidance of satellites)

Specific powder characteristics
by use of different atomisation nozzles and optional use of hot spray gas

Modular availability of free fall as well as close coupled atomisation nozzles to obtain specific metal powder characteristics. Fast and easy nozzle change.

Easy-to-clean concept
Polished stainless steel surfaces prevent powder adhesions in spray chamber, cyclone and collector – all parts are easy to clean without any residues.

Dynamic Differential Pressure system for constant metal mass flow
The DDP system is ensuring a constant and controllable metal mass fl ow, and therewith gas-to-metal ratio, independant from the melt
level in the crucible.
