Sintering or frittage is the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat or pressure without melting it to the point of liquefaction.. Sintering happens naturally in mineral deposits or as a manufacturing process used with metals, ceramics, plastics, and other materials.

Vacuum sintering furnace is a special technical equipment for ultra-high temperature sintering process of reaction bonded silicon carbide products, which can meet the requirements of industrial production of this product.
Sintered silicon nitride articles are prepared from a silicon nitride compact by forming a silicon powder containing one or more sintering additives for silicon nitride into a compact having at density of at least 1.3 g/cm 3, said additives being present in the powder in an amount such as to ensure an additive content of from 0.5 to 20 wt. % in the silicon nitride compact, nitriding the silicon compact by heating under nitrogen gas blanket at a temperature not exceeding 1500° C., to
Silicon carbide ceramics sintering process. The reaction sintered SiC is composed of α-SiC powder, graphite powder, flux and binder. After mixing them and forming,then it is placed in a crucible filled with silica fume. Put the crucible in the vacuum and heat it to 1600-1800 ℃.The silicon reacts with the carbon in the crucible to form β-SiC,
Abbott Furnace Company manufactures continuous belt sintering furnaces used in the powder metal industry. Sintering is a heat treatment applied to a powder compact in order to impart strength and integrity. The temperature used for sintering is below the melting point of the major constituent of the Powder Metal material.
Reaction-Bonded Silicon Nitride (RBSN) With this method, a silicon compact is heated it in a nitrogen rich atmosphere – the nitrogen binds to the silicon powder to produce a porous and not fully dense silicon nitride body. There is little shrinkage in this process making green-machining (machining the compact prior to sintering) very effective.
Oxide Reduction. The oxide layer must be reduced to allow the particles to come in contact. The reduction is the result of the reaction between the furnace atmosphere and the oxygen in the oxide layer. A typical sintering furnace atmosphere will contain Hydrogen and/or Carbon Monoxide to react with the Oxygen on the surface of the metal particles.
The powder metallurgy route applied was a conventional route consisting of blending titanium matrix powder with different percentages of various titanium compounds, as reinforcement particles, followed by cold compaction in a uniaxial press with a floating matrix and a sintering process in a vacuum furnace.
A novel asymmetric, sintered, and reaction-bonded silicon nitride (SRBSN) membrane was fabricated by a phase-inversion tape-casting combined with reaction sintering method. The produced membrane featured high bending strength, high porosity, and an appropriate pore-size distribution ascribed to the growth of fine interlaced β-Si 3 N 4 crystals.
Oct 20, 2019 · Reaction bonded silicon nitride involvings pressing pure silicon powder into a desired shape and firing it in a nitrogen furnace to induce the reaction between silicon and nitrogen. The transformation of Si to Si 3 N 4 is accompanied by a 22% volume increase, but this expansion is entirely into the body; that is, the surface silicon is nitrided first, creating a rigid shell that inhibits expansion.
The type of silicon powder and sintering additive were found to influence the processing and final mechanical properties of sintered reaction bonded silicon nitride. High purity silicon powders produced low a-Si,N, content during nitridation. The Si powder type had no apparent effect on densification. More

Reaction Bonded Silicon Carbide(RBSIC or SISIC) has series of basic superiority and characteristic such as high strength,extreme hardness,wear resistance,high temperature tolerance,corrosion resistance,oxidization resistance,thermal shock resistance,high thermal conductivity,low coefficient of thermal expansion,creep resistance under high temperature and so on.
reaction bonded silicon carbide parts are obtained. Introduction . Silicon carbide is an engineering ceramic which is difficult to manufacture by most conventional powder processing routes . Reaction bonding, however, is a process that allows for near net-shape production of SiC materials at lower processing temperatures and in shorter times . It
Reaction sintering is one of the most attractive manufacturing processes of silicon carbide (SiC), because of dense structure, low processing temperature, good shape capability, low cost and high
products from the Si3N4, the sintering aids and the furnace environment. They pointed out that the carbon from the furnace environment can create a chain of self-sustaining reactions (not balanced): CO(g) + Si0(g) + C —>SiC + O(g) C + O(g) CO(g) (1) The powder bed could also be used to provide active protection by generating the same kinds of
Reaction sintering can be defined as a fabrication process in which two or more components of the required compound react together during the sintering operation. The advantage of reaction sintering is that only slight dimensional change occurs during densification, in contrast to ceramics shaped by one of the conventional forming techniques.
Reaction bonded SiC is made from α-SiC powder, graphite powder, mixing additives and organic adhesive agent. The mixture body is extruded and then filled into crucible with silicon powder. Sinter in a vacuum heating furnace at 1680° C, the melt silicon powder reacts to the silicon in the body, finally from β-Sic due to the heat of reaction.
Reaction Bonded Silicon Carbide has high strength and outstanding hardness, wear resistance, oxidization resistance and thermal shock resistance. It's one of the most popular refractory ceramics. The slip-casting combined with our net-shape sintered technologies and superior machine ability, which enables production of complex shapes and big size with strict dimensional tolerances.
