EIGA- An Innovative Production Method for Metal Powder from Reactive and Refractory Alloys

Publisher: ALD Vacuum Technologies, Inc.
This paper highlights the benefits of Electrode Induction Melting Gas Atomization (EIGA) as an innovative production method for metal powder from reactive and refractory alloys. In the EIGA process, pre-alloyed rods in form of an electrode are inductively melted and atomized without any contact between the melted material and a crucible. The document describes the EIGA process, including its practical limitations in detail. It features graphical presentation of the schematic and working principle of the EIGA atomization system, incorrectly and correctly turned drip melt, the magnetic field of conical HF induction coil, and includes tabular presentation of the process data of EIGA system and material properties of feedstock material for EIGA test runs to support the thesis of the paper.
