Liberty Powder Metals orders new ASL atomiser for highly spherical free-flowing powder production

June 13, 2019

Atomising Systems Ltd. (ASL), Sheffield, UK, has been awarded a contract for the turnkey installation of a 250 kg Vacuum Inert Gas Atomiser at Liberty Powder Metals Ltd, a subsidiary of Liberty House Group, also located in Sheffield.

Working in co-operation with Consarc Engineering, a supplier of vacuum melting technology, ASL has equipped the atomiser with its proprietary anti-satellite and hot gas atomisation systems.

“The Anti-Satellite technology is a game changer in terms of powder shape and flow properties. Coupled to a vacuum melting furnace from a renowned specialist like Consarc, Liberty will be set to supply their clients with powder of the highest quality,” stated Dr Paul Rose, ASL Commercial Director.

The high specification atomiser will enable Liberty to produce highly spherical, extremely free flowing, special steel-based and non-ferrous alloy powders for their demanding aerospace clients to use in Additive Manufacturing, as well as Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) applications.
