Abstract

Alumina-titania compounds are used in industries ranging from catalyst production to wear resistance coatings. Their formulations require different mixing techniques and forming processes. The goal of this study is to understand the effect of different mixing techniques on the component distribution (mixedness) of the alumina-titania batch. Techniques employed include wet mixing, dry mixing with compounding, and dry mixing with multiple extrusions. An analysis of the effect of processing conditions on the mixedness of these alumina-titania extrudates has been performed using scanning electron microscopy followed by energy dispersive x-ray analysis. Rheological properties of the extruded pastes have also been measured. Overall mixedness of the alumina-titania batch has been found to vary with the process shear applied by mixing.
