Arcast to supply gas atomisation system for production of reactive metal powders

March 16, 2018

Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS) on behalf of the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA), and of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has awarded Arcast Inc. a contract to supply a gas atomisation system for producing fine, spherical, reactive metal powders. This is a specialised system for handling a wide range of challenging metals and alloys that are of interest to the national laboratory and other government agencies.

“We are very proud to have been chosen for this work and making a contribution to our country’s capabilities in these challenging areas of science,” stated Arcast. “We believe it was Arcast’s unique approach to handling reactive metals and our good value proposal that persuaded LLNS to choose us to supply this equipment.”

Arcast’s line of gas atomisers ranges from 5–200kg conventional batch type ceramic/refractory based close-coupled gas atomisers, to free fall atomisers for reactive metals like titanium. The company states that it has installed a number of research machines in major public research and educational institutions globally, as well as in corporate laboratories.
