Multifrequency adapter improves screening operation
A metal powders producer installs a multifrequency adapter in a screener to improve screening efficiency and increase on-size particle yields.
F. W. Winter Inc. & Co., Camden, N. J., produces various metal powders for companies that manufacture products for welding, hard-facing thermal spray, deposition coating, and powder metallurgy and metal injection molding applications. The company produces a finesized proprietary metal alloy powder for one of its customers and was usually able to produce enough material to meet the customer's requirements. However, when the customer needed more material than usual, the company had a difficult time efficiently screening the quantities needed. To improve screening efficiency and increase on-size particle yields, the company worked with a supplier of screeners and multifrequency adapters.
