What does a Nozzle Tender do?

Tends equipment that produces aluminum powder from molten aluminum: Installs ceramic tube in furnace and positions air nozzle and power collection duct as specified. Taps furnace to allow molten aluminum to flow through ceramic tube where it is transformed into powder by blast from air nozzle and blown into powder collection duct. Observes flow of metal and adjusts air nozzle to regulate fineness of powder. Sifts powder sample through series of sieves and weighs contents remaining in each sieve to estimate quantity of each grade of powder.
