Valuation of titanium sheet residues for the manufacture of titanium powder through atomization.
The VARTIP project values titanium sheet waste with the aim of manufacturing high added value titanium powder and thus promoting its subsequent commercialization.
In this sense, VARTIP develops a new centrifugal atomization technology for high melting point materials,which will allow the manufacture of highly spherical powders, an essential feature that must meet this type of powders in the vast majority of applications.
The recovery process consists of a direct transformation of the sheet metal powder remains through atomization, without intermediate stages and making it an energy efficient and economically advantageous process.
JORCAR 2009, S.L. participates in the project through its usual collaboration with the FUNDACIÓ EURECAT technology laboratory, which is responsible for advising on the design and construction of this new atomization equipment, to adapt it to the necessary particularities in the processing and atomization of titanium.
On the other hand, JORCAR 2009, S.L. also participates in the adjustment phase of the equipment and in the subsequent evaluation of the final product obtained.
