TEHRAN- Iran has produced 38,160 tons of alumina powder during the first two months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21-May 21).

As announced by Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO), the figure shows eight percent decline as compared to 41,699 tons of the product produced in the first two months of the previous year.

Aluminum oxide, which is commonly called alumina, is an inert, odorless, white amorphous material often used in industrial ceramics.

Alumina is an important ceramic material for industrial applications. The numerous fields of application range from construction materials, to filling materials, as well as abrasives and catalysts.

In plants and mechanical engineering, alumina ceramics are mainly used for wear and corrosion protection.

The particle size distribution largely determines the application range and the quality of an alumina powder. Reliably identifying the differences in particle size is therefore an essential requirement of the measuring instrument.
