Abstract

Combustion of aluminium particles in carbon dioxide atmosphere was investigated. The study of particles of commercially available aluminum-rich alloys was also performed. Uniform size and temperature metal particles were produced using pulsed microarc. It was found that the size of burning particles decreased and more than 94% aluminum was consumed by combustion in carbon dioxide presence. The results also revealed that the rate of aluminum combustion was faster in presence of CO2.
