Abstract : An analysis has been made of the existing literature, including patents, on the manufacture of nickel powder from nickel tetracarbonyl to produce a powder of low apparent density and suitable for use in making sintered plaques for alkaline batteries. On the basis of this data and ideas developed during the investigations of the sintered plate battery, a design is proposed for a pilot apparatus to produce 100 grams of carbonyl nickel powder per hour. Attention has been given to safety features, expression of design in terms of chemical engineering indices, including mass and heat transfer, and to the kinetics of the reaction in terms of operating procedure and the final properties of the powder.
