Titanium Powder

Titanium powder is a spherical shaped metal powder that is now one of the major powders used in the additive manufacturing (3D printing) industry. A problem that occurs with screening titanium powder is that near sized, spehrical particles get caught in the square shaped hole and cause clogging. Titanium powder also has the tendency to coat the screen causing blinding. Keeping the particles up in the air so they dont have time to settle in the screen openings is key to making an efficient separation. The powder is also explosive and must be handled carefully.

Elcan's Experience

Elcan Industries has the ability to remove fines from titanium powder at sizes as low as 10 microns. We have had numerous successful trials on titanium powder for the additive manufacturing industry and have already sold a number of machines to titanium powder producers. The Hi-Sifter's high vertical energy keeps the particles in the air and prevents them from getting a chance to settle on and blind the screen. The entire body of the Hi-Sifter is stainless steel so there is no non-metal contact area within the screening machine. We have achieved extremely high efficiencies on titanium at very low micron sizes and titanium, especially has been a very successful application for the Hi-Sifter.
