Lead shot making by magneto-hydrodynamic method - means resonance jet dispersion of Lead fluid jet.
Production capacity in kilos per hour does not depend on percentage of antimony (Sb 0 - 7%). For example 26-35 kg per hour of lead diam. 2,3 mm. (or 88-105 kg/h for dia 3,5 mm.
Splitting frequency of jet is 100-150 GHz (100-150 pellet per second). There should be 1 or 2 people working per shift.
Average electriciy consumption 7-9kWt/hour. Average gas consumption depends on chemical composition of raw material. On average it's 0.17 cubic meter/hour of argon or nitrogen of high purity. The water is recycled. There is almost no waste.
For different diameter of shot there are different throttles with different sizes of calibre holes. To change the diameter of lead shot it normally takes 3-5 minutes. You don't have to switch off machie.
It is important that you can regulate size between the fixed ones in any way by amending parameters of electrical current.
