Production of CuSn10 bronze powder from machining chips using jet milling

Production of CuSn10 bronze powder from machining chips using jet milling In this study, an experimental target plate jet mill was designed and used to produce CuSn10 bronze powder from its machining chips. Taguchi method with an L9 orthogonal array was used as experimental design to determine the optimum conditions for the pulverization of the machining chips via jet milling. The effect of process variables including nozzle to target distance, impact angle, and air pressure were investigated. The optimum conditions were found to be 8 cm for nozzle to target distance, a 90° angle between nozzle and target, and an air pressure of 7 bar. Repeated impact cycles lead to the production of finer and more rounded particles, although the rate of size reduction was reduced. The jet-milled powder did not contain any contamination, and the amount of the surface oxide of the jet-milled powder was even lower than that of the initial machining chips. Investigation of the fragmentation of particles revealed that the initial machining cracks were the main sites for breakage during pulverization. In addition, the delta phase in the microstructure of the bronze alloy plays an important role in the propagation of pre-existing cracks as well as creating new cracks.
