Atomized Powders

At its Hart Metals plant in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania USA, Magnesium Elektron Powders operates two continuous-production, inert-gas magnesium powder atomizers. With decades of experience in atomizing magnesium powders, Hart has developed its own unique and proprietary atomization technology. The upgraded, computer-controlled, state-of-the-art atomizer unit uses robotic systems to feed U.S.- made standard purity (99.8 % magnesium) ingots into a high-efficiency furnace to be melted and atomized. A proprietary powder-handling system collects the atomized powder and classifies it to desired powder sizes.

Hart Metals’ ultra-high-quality atomized magnesium powders are spherically shaped and free flowing, providing superior apparent density, lower oxygen content and excellent consistency and reproducibility.

Designated as a “Critical Supplier” by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), Hart Metals works closely with DOD and manufactures its products to meet stringent military specifications.

Pure atomized magnesium powders are also available for commercial applications in a number of sizes ranging from coarse powders (-10 Mesh) to fine powders (-325 Mesh).
