Metal powder for the chemical industry

Many chemical reactions and other processes in the chemical industry use metal powder as starting material, due to their peculiar features.

  • Variety of reacting elements

  • Purity of the reagents

  • Possibility to vary the reactivity by changing the particle size distribution

Magnetic Seeds Collection

  • Thanks to their magnetic behavior iron powders are ideal in a number of magnetic applications, like non destructive magnetic tests (i.e. on welding and casting discontinuity).

  • This process permits to identify possible cracks or defects without further damage the piece.

Catalyst

  • Metal powder is a very convenient raw material to be used as a catalyst in chemical processes.

  • Iron, stainless steel, copper, tin and zinc are all materials which are used either as raw material or as catalyst element.

  • A variety of application fields like preparation of catalyst and reduction of nitrous compounds into amine are among the most relevant.

pigments

  • Metal powder is a very convenient raw material to feed chemical processes. 

  • Control of the melting process ensures chemical composition is kept within specification limits. 

  • Low un-desired metals and oxides content permits to have consistent and repeatable performance when the powder is used as a pigment.

Animal Fortification

  • Iron is often used in dietary supplements and for pharmaceutical preparation in animal use.

  • Annealed iron can be supplied in its most pure form and finest grade to meet this application requirements.

  • Fine iron powders can also be used for cosmetics preparation

Reagents

  • Metal powder is a very convenient raw material to feed chemical processes.

  • High specific surface of Metal powders ensure good reactivity, Control of the melting process ensures chemical composition is kept within specification limits.

  • Industrial processing ensure stability of the key physical parameters (geometry, flowability, density, size distribution) thus allowing customer to optimise its production efficiency.

Groundwater Remediation

  • Iron powder can be used for a process that is used to treat polluted groundwater by removing the pollutants or converting them into harmless products.
