Auger filler for titanium dioxide strengthens alloy manufacturer's process control

A titanium alloy manufacturer found that a highly accurate auger filler for small amounts of titanium dioxide had good software reporting capabilities for a process control program.

Oremet Titanium, Albany, Oreg., manufactures titanium alloy ingots. For processing, the alloy manufacturer receives tank railcars of liquid titanium tetrachloride, which is reduced in a reaction with magnesium to form a porous-looking material called titanium sponge. The sponge, a 15,000-pound block, is approximately 20 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 4 feet high. A large hydraulic table-type blade shear initially reduces the block to chunks, which a series of mills reduce to granules.
