& Alloy Products
F. W. Winter Inc. & Co. offers a variety of grades of metal & alloy as both powders & lump material.
Lump products are available in sizes from 4″ x D (< 100 mm) to ¼” x D or (< 6.25 mm).
Powders are available in a range of sizes from coarse powders: 10 mesh x D (< 2 mm) to fine powders with a median size as low as 3 µm.
F. W. Winter, Inc. & Co. manufactures a high quality aluminothermic chromium powder. The company is proud of its capability to tailor products to customer requirements.
Aluminothermic chromium powder is used for a variety of applications including: welding electrodes & wires; aluminium hardners; and coating applications.
F. W. Winter, Inc. & Co.’s chromium powders provide a unique combination of good flowability and a high apparent density.
Further, the company’s stringent quality control efforts through the whole process, ensure a consistent, reliable, and high quality product.
Strict quality control procedures in the manufacturing process result in a highly consistent product. The company’s fine electrolytic powder, “325MxD”, conforms to GE specification B10D5-S2. The company also manufactures finer grades of powder with an median size of around 8 to 12 mm and 2 to 5 mm.
LOW CARBON FERRO-CHROME
Extra Low Carbon - Regular Low Carbon
Low carbon ferro-chromium, either as lump or as ¼”xD, is used in a number of melting applications which include the manufacture of specialized steels and many super alloys.
The company has developed a unique process for the manufacture of high quality low-carbon ferro-chromium powders with varying size distributions.
Coarser powders of low carbon ferro-chromium, typically 14 mesh x D, are used in the manufacture of injection wires for trim additions in melt shops.
Powders 50×325 mesh and finer are used in the manufacture of welding electrodes, both flux-cored wires and stick electrodes.
F. W. Winter, Inc. & Co.’s low-carbon ferro-chromium powders have superior characteristics such as flow and apparent density.
HIGH CARBON FERRO-CHROME
Regular High Carbon (8%) - Extra High Carbon (9%)
The company has a dedicated process to manufacture high quality high-carbon ferro-chromium powders in a wide range of size distributions and carbon contents.
Coarser powders of extra high carbon (9% C min.) ferro-chromium, typically 20×230 mesh, are used for hard facing applications wherein the powder is used to directly deposit an overlay on steel plates, pipes, and other structures.
Powders 50×325 mesh and finer are used in the manufacture of welding electrodes, both flux-cored wire and stick electrodes.
The company also produces a finer grade powder with a median size of around 8 to 12 µm for powder metallurgy and metal injection molding.
F. W. Winter, Inc. & Co.’s high-carbon ferro-chromium powders have superior characteristics such as shape, flow, and apparent density.
F. W. Winter, Inc. & Co. manufactures a variety of special alloys in different size distributions for a wide range of applications.
Lump special alloys are used in a variety of melting applications throughout the steel and related metals industries. Coarse powders, 14 mesh x D, are used to manufacture injection wires for trim alloying additions to steel melts.
The 20 mesh x D powders are typically used in hard facing applications as alloying ingredients for overlays on steel structures for wear resistance applications.
Powders 40 mesh x D and finer are normally used in the manufacture of welding electrodes, both stick electrodes and flux-cored wires.
The fine powders are primarily used for powder metallurgy applications.
