High Purity Iron powder Fe Powder CAS 7439-89-6, 99%

Description of Iron powder :

The iron powder has a metallic lustre, appears black or grey, and its surface structure is a disordered stack of particles. Iron powder has a density of 7.8g/cm3, is insoluble in water but has hydrophilic properties, and can react with water to produce iron hydroxide. The hardness of iron powder is large, the wear resistance is good, can be used in plastic processing and forging. 

Iron powder's particle size and morphology are important factors affecting its properties. The particle size of iron powder is generally between a few microns and several hundred microns and can be adjusted as needed. In terms of morphology, iron powder can show spherical, needle, flake, irregular shape, etc. These different forms are related to iron powder's production methods and application fields. Iron powder has strong reducingproperties and can react with various oxidants. Iron powder is not easy to oxidize at room temperature, but at high temperatures, it is easy to oxidize with oxygen, water vapour, etc., to produce iron trioxide. Iron powder can undergo a reduction reaction in a reducing atmosphere and be reduced to metallic iron. 

In addition, iron powder also has good electrical conductivity and magnetism. Its electrical conductivity is better than most metals, and a good conductor. At the same time, iron powder is also a soft magnetic material with low coercivity and remanence ratio, which can be used to make various magnetic components and sensors.

Application of Iron powder :

Iron and steel industry 

Iron powder is mainly used in the steel industry to produce steel products. When mixing iron powder and binder to create powder metallurgy products, The strength, hardness and resistance to wear of material will be substantially increased. In addition, iron powder can also be used to produce high-strength chains, screws, automotive parts and other precision castings. 

Magnetic material 

Iron powder is widely used in producing various magnetic products as one of the main raw materials of magnetic materials. For example, ferrite magnetic material is a common magnetic material that is made by mixing iron powder with other metal oxides. In addition, iron powder can also be used to manufacture various magnetic recording materials and magnetic sensors. 

Powder metallurgy products 

Powder metallurgy products are an advanced manufacturing technology that can obtain excellent physical and chemical properties by making metal powders into products with desired shapes and properties. Iron powder is an important raw material in powder metallurgy products, which can be used to produce various high-strength and high-hardness parts and tools. 

In the field of powder metallurgy products, the application of iron powder includes the following aspects: 

(1) Automotive manufacturing industry: Powder metallurgy creates automobile parts, such as gears, bearings, pistons, etc., with high strength, wear resistance and corrosion resistance. 

(2) Machinery manufacturing industry: powder metallurgy products can be used to produce a variety of high-strength, high-hardness mechanical parts and tools, such as tools, fixtures, measuring tools, etc. 

(3) Aerospace industry: powder metallurgy products can be used to produce aerospace parts, such as turbine blades, guides, sealing rings, etc., with high strength, high precision and high reliability. 

Chemical industry 

Iron powder can be used to make various chemicals in the chemical industry. For example, iron powder can produce ferrous sulfate and iron hydroxide and make fine chemicals such as dyes and pesticides. 

In addition, iron powder can also be used to produce new catalysts, carrier catalysts and other catalyst products. These catalyst products are widely used in various chemical reaction processes, such as alkylation, hydrogenation, and hydrogenation reactions. 

Other fields 

In addition to the above application areas, iron powder can be used in other fields. For example, iron powder can be used to produce a variety of ornaments and gifts, such as artificial pearls, metal jewellery and so on. In addition, iron powder can also be used to produce high-performance materials such as electromagnetic shielding materials and conductive coatings.

Production Method of Iron powder :

Beneficiation method 

The beneficiation method uses the physical and chemical properties of iron and other minerals differences through crushing, grinding, classification, flotation and other processes; iron minerals are separated from the raw ore and processed to obtain iron powder. The beneficiation method can be divided into the natural iron ore beneficiation method and the artificial iron ore beneficiation method. 

Atomization method 

The atomization method is to pour the molten iron into the autoclave, atomize it into small droplets through the nozzle, and then quickly solidify it into powdered iron powder. According to the different raw materials used, Atomization processes are classified into hot metal atomization and alloy atomization.

Mechanical ball milling method 

The mechanical ball milling method uses the ball mill to break and grind the iron block or iron sheet into powder and, simultaneously, add the appropriate amount of additives and grind the iron powder to the required particle size and quality through stirring and grinding. 

Reduction method 

The reduction method uses reducing agents to reduce iron oxides into iron powder. According to the different reducing agents used, the reduction method can be divided into carbon reduction, hydrogen, and gas reduction methods. Among them, the gas reduction method is to react iron oxides with reducing gases at high temperatures to produce iron powder and carbon dioxide or other gases.
