Spherical alumina is produced through high temperature melt injection. This produces a high rate of spherical growth, high alpha-phase aluminum oxide content and superior performance in rubber, plastic, and ceramic materials.
Here is an overview of each method for preparing spherical-grade alumina.
Here are seven different ways you can prepare spherical aluminum:
Various sedimentation method
Crystal nucleation is the process of precipitating in homogeneous solutions. After that, the aggregation becomes greater and eventually from the solution. But, if you lower the concentration of precipitant in homogeneous, even slowly, then many microcrystals nuclei are generated. Finally formed finely precipitated particle will then be uniformly distributed in the entire solution. A balanced state can then be maintained for a considerable time. The average prediction method. Al2(SO4)3, Al (NO3)3 and urea are used as raw materials. Under the oil bath at 98 degrees C, the hydroxide produced by slow hydrolysis urea becomes a precipitant. After calcination, it is possible to adjust the SO42-/NO3- ratio so that the particles of the precursor can be adjusted in size. Al2(SO4)3 was used in the preparation of alumina solution. Also, the colloid particles obtained have excellent spherical shapes. This technique was applied to Al2 (SO4) 3, urea, and both spherical, hollow-spherical, alumina powders. It was also used for homogeneous precipitation methods, which are those in which the precipitated particles fall within the range of collloid particles. In addition to the conditions of SO42 – present, it is often difficult to finally form a glue of the globiosis in the gelation of sol particles to finally form a globiotype, so people think that this formation of sol-emulsion-condensation Gladle.
2. Sol-emulsion-gel method
Based on the sol-gel method, this technique produces spherical particles by using the interface tensions of the oil phase with the aqueous phase. The formation of sol particles or gelation is achieved in small droplets. Alu hydrolysis produced the spheroidized powder of aluminum. It contained 50% aluminum and 40% acetonitrile. The remaining 9% and 1 percent were from the dispersed water and octanol, butanol, and 10%, respectively. Using hydroxypropylcellulose as a dispersant to obtain a spherical g-alumina powder having a very good spherical degree.
3. Use drip method
Droplet binding is used to bond the alumina sol in the oil layer. It’s usually achieved using paraffin, mineral oils, and other similar substances. The resulting spherical solution forms a particulate. Next, it is gelled in an acidic ammonia solution. Finally, the gel particles are created. This technique is intended to enhance the sol-emulsion gel method.
4. Use templates
A template method, which is an agent that controls the morphology during the process of spherical feeder stock, is used. The product can be either hollow or has a nuclear shell. Aluminum powder surface, which is the commercial micron spherical aluminium powder, is used to simplify aluminum powder’s surface. While the template method is an effective method of preparing an air-sphericalsphere, however, its cost is much higher than the template agent. Also, because the preparation steps are more involved, it can prove difficult to follow.
5. Gas solve decomposition method
An aluminum salt is often used as an aerosol component. It uses the properties of high-temperaturepyrolysis and aluminum alcohols salts to make alkoxide. Next, it is heated with water vapour. Finally, the phase transition occurs. These complex experiments, which include atomizing moiety or reaction moieties, are key to the method.
6. The radio frequency-induction plasma method
Alumina powder is treated with radio frequency plasma to spheroidize using radio frequency plasma. This plasma has high energy density, heat resistance, and simple material processing. The powder is free from any electrodes and therefore not affected by electrode evaporation. This allows for the purification of alumina. In addition to the irregular shape of alumina, feed gases are used to spray the plasma torch. Plasma is quickly heated and the plasma melts. Droplets will quickly become solidified in a short time and form small particles.
It takes only a few minutes to create the essence of spine alumina. Surface tension is what forms the product spherically. You can divide it into three types according to phase transition: spray heat solution (SO4) 3, spray drying Law (NO3) 3. AlCl3, Al2 SO4) 3, Al(NO3) 3 solution form small droplets through atomization. The process also requires high temperatures heat to generate spherical particles. To form an aluminum salt solution, first react the ammonia with it to make an aluminasol. Next, spray the aluminasol at 150-240°C or obtain the spherical products.
