Metal Powders

Serving the metallurgy industry

MetallurgyFor over 50 years, Russell Finex have been supplying practical solutions to the challenging metallurgy industry. From sieves to ultrasonic deblinding solutions, we have the right equipment and knowledge to help improve the quality of your metal powders.

In all sectors of metal powder production, there is a requirement for accurate particle size distribution. With our market-leading separators and equipment, we can give you the tools you need to achieve this.

We have advised hundreds of metallurgy companies over the years, and have an impressive reference list of major customers.

Some key applications

Mesh Blinding

The biggest single problem in sieving metal powders is mesh blinding, where the apertures of the mesh screen are blocked. Mesh blinding can cause reduced sieving capacity, inconsistent particle specification and reduced sieve mesh life.

Metal powders are often sieved following reduction and grinding processes. This removes oversize, un-milled particles or agglomerates, ensuring accurate particle size distribution. Powder metallurgy sintering and pressing also relies on accurate particle size so sieving and grading are key steps to undertake.
