Compact and Portable Metal Nano-powder Generator

Overview

The nanoparticle generator is portable and operates with a power supply of 500Watts only and with single phase 230 volts supply. Because of the portability the agglomeration of nanoparticles due to transport can be drastically minimized. In this way consumption of the nanoparticles can be achieved before they agglomerate. Additionally, almost all the metals can be fed as raw material. The device can be operated by one person only and as per high voltage safety requirement another person can supervise the production.

The system generates metal Nano-powder by electrically blasting optimized metal wire which is fed repetitively and in time control sequence. All the components are available in Indian market so quick maintenance of the system during operation cycle is possible.

ADVANTAGES

  • Portable device
  • Any metal wire of specified dimensions can be fed to it
  • 230Volts single phase supply
  • Remotely controlled
  • Single person can operate with great ease
  • Generator requires High Voltage safety and Nano-powder handling requires mask and gloves.

  • For purification of water (Industrial waste of leather/dye industry) like arsenic and chromium-6 reduction (Literature reports are available)
  • Coating of PPE in current covid-19 global scenario (Literature reports are available)

  • Iron metal nano-powder is used in medical field.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • 230 Volts single phase operation and can be operated with max 16 Ampere supply
  • Remote controlling of the operation to minimize electrical hazards
  • Enclosed chamber for Nano-particle production so mechanical hazard due to shock waves are not there.
  • Electrical control on the wire feed mechanism is implemented so repetitive firing is possible in a single run.
  • Electrical parameters like capacitor bank charging voltage, input current and capacitor discharge current can be monitored with the help of suitable data acquisition systems. These sensors are in built to the system.
  • All the components of the capacitor bank are available in Indian market and the machining of the chamber/ other mechanical hardware can be locally done so maintenance of machine would be very easy and quick because we don’t have to be dependent on exotic solutions.
  • The machine can be multiplied in numbers easily and two machines can be operated with linked mode so that same 230Volts & max. 16Ampere supply can be optimally used for its operation without enhancing instantaneous power demands.
  • The machine weight is less than 15kgms so any person can single handedly place the machine at the location where Nano-particles are to be finally used. This may drastically reduce the agglomeration possibility due to transportation delay to the user’s site from the production area.
  • Machine requires electrical power of 500Watts. So 1kWatt supply for single machine is well and good for operation.

FACILITIES REQUIRED

For commercial production of the Nano-particle generator one requires a fabrication facility support, a technician of electrical diploma holder to assemble the electrical components. All the components are available in the local Indian market so maintenance can also be easily. Multiplication of the device by making in numbers is also possible to expedite the production process for nanoparticles. Single operating person can operate many devices as they are automatic controlled. High voltage safety demands the supervisor also.

Who Should apply


Interested parties with Engineering & Scientific knowledge, good financial background and adequate experience of products manufacturing & fabrication with technical capability in the area of interested technology and having or interested in setting –up facilities for production would be preferred.
