Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a section of sintered brass, part of the filter incorporated into the burner of an oil-fired central heating boiler. Sintering is accomplished by compressing and heating the metal (or components of an alloy) in the form of a powder. This results in the fusion of the particles where they touch; the longer the process continues, the smaller the spaces between the particles in the final product. In a filter such as this, the spaces are large to allow passage of fuel. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, which may contain up to forty-five percent zinc. Magnification: x18 at 6x4.5cm size.
