Atomized Powder
Atomized Powder

Project Description

This project seeks to enhance the control of metal powder production by gas atomization methods to benefit the implementation of several emerging Fossil Energy technologies that utilize metal powders of specific size ranges and types, either not available from (novel compositions) or not efficiently produced by industrial powder makers.

Project Benefits

Efficient production of such powders can eliminate a major technological barrier to the use of new concepts for fabrication, for example, hydrogen membranes, heat exchanger tubing, and oxidation/ sulfidation resistant coatings.
