Gas Atomization (Gas Atomization Process) is one of the most common methods for manufacturing metal powders, which is a process for manufacturing fine powders by ejecting gas into molten metal.
During the gas automization process, metal powders are obtained when the high pressure gas jets from the nozzle gives the strong impact energy to molten metal droplets during their fall through the orifice.
The changes of the factors such as gas type and pressure, internal diameter of orifice and nozzle type have an effect on the major characteristics such as powder properties, shapes and particle size distribution.
