Robustness simulation of water atomisation

One of the main purposes of water atomisation is to keep the powder size distribution within a close range. The process is difficult to monitor and thus the state of today's process control is poor. To investigate this process, both a laboratory scale and an industrial scale atomisation facility were modelled where melt flow and thermal flow were investigated. The results showed that metal temperature is important if stable particle sizes are to be obtained from batch to batch.
