Ferrite Cores - Properties and Applications

Ferrite Cores - Properties and Applications

Ferrite cores arc moulded from a mixture of metallic oxides such that certain iron atoms in the cubic crystal of magnetite are replaced by other metal atoms such as Mn and Zn to form manganese zinc ferrite. They resemble ceramic material in production process and physical properties. Its magnetic permeability may be as high as 5000 and apparent dielectric constants in excess of 100,000. The curie point is quite low in the range of 1000 to 300°. Typical normal induction curve of soft ferrite, is shown in Fig. 4.10. The temperature dependence of a magnesium manganese core is shown in Figure.

(a) Powdered Iron Core:

Powdered Iron has a grain size of 10 microns are manufactured and coated with special insulating material upto 1 micron. The powder is mixed with binding material, compressed and baked. The product is chemically stable magnetic body. When mixed with alloy it attains superior magnetic properties and also permit the use of small cores. Some of the composition of ferrites along with its application is given in Table.

Composition and Applications of Ferrites:
