high-temperature properties of silicon nitride . The spark plasma sintering is a modified method of hot pressing. SPS means a direct transmission of electric current directly through the mold and the pressed workpiece, and not through the external heater in comparison with the HP. Fast heating and short cycle
The annealed ingots were ground to powders with an agate mortar and then pressed using the spark plasma sintering (SPS-515S, SPS SYNTEX INC) method at 573-673 K and 50-100 MPa under vacuum for 5 min to form a dense pellet of 12.7 mm in diameter and 15 mm in height.

201261Spark plasma sintering is an ever-growing class of versatile techniques for sintering particulate materials. Spark plasma sintering (SPS) is a rapid sintering technique that is assisted by pressure and electric field. The scientific and industrial importance of SPS technologies is widely recognized.
Sintering is an elevated temperature treatment done in a furnace utilizing a protective atmosphere. The process can be done at atmospheric pressure or in vacuum furnaces. PM parts can be manufactured in several ways: the standard method as previously described and powder forging which takes a sintered preform and hot forges it to almost wrought

temperature. Electric fields during conventional SPS are not high enough to induce flash sintering in ionic-conductor or semiconductor ceramic materials. However, electric fields under this new mold design are stronger than in conventional SPS and could be tailored to induce flash sintering in a SPS furnace. This approach and the feasibility of
high speed sintering spark plasma sintering furnace During the cooling, the SPS furnace was flooded with argon gas to 4 kPa at rate of 10 l/min, maintaining the sintering temperature. It was then quenched from 850°C with room temperature nitrogen gas at a very high flow rate of 8000 l/min from the nozzles.

201239The DCS Model 100-36 will be integral to the study of new ultra-high temperature ceramic composites. "Thermal Technology has dominated the domestic spark plasma sintering market since 2008 and we currently have six systems in various stages of completion," says Matt Mede, Thermal Technology president and CEO.
Spark plasma sintering. In spark plasma sintering (SPS), external pressure and an electric field are applied simultaneously to enhance the densification of the metallic/ceramic powder compacts. However, after commercialization it was determined there is no plasma, so the proper name is spark sintering as coined by Lenel.
2019729SANTA ROSA, Calif., October 31, 2011 — Thermal Technology recently received orders for a 10-ton, 4,000 amp Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) system and a high temperature laboratory furnace from the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) at the University of Wollongong in Australia.
Rapid sintering of crack-free zirconia ceramics by pressure . Heating of a ceramic green body is a key step in sintering. We have created inside a spark plasma sintering apparatus pressure-less sintering conditions that allow homogeneous and extremely rapid heating.

Spark Plasma Sintering Sintering is the process of making objects from powder, by heating the material in a furnace below its melting point so that bonding takes place by diffusion of atoms. This leads to individual powder particles adhering to each other in a dense compact.
