Abstract

A method for evaluating the effectiveness of a compaction process to fracture nitrided titanium sponge particles is disclosed. Nitrided seeds containing varying nitrogen contents are immersed in colored liquids, which make the nitrided seeds visually detectable, before being added to the melt process. As a result, when a puck is broken to determine the effectiveness of the compaction process, the nitrided seeds are easily distinguishable from the non-nitrided sponge particles.
