Understanding Thermal Metal Spray Equipment

Thermal spraying is an industrial coating process that uses heat to restore the surface or functionality of industrial equipment. A coating alloy is chosen and coated onto the shaft using a high temperature spray gun powered by liquid fuel and oxygen. The alloy is fed into the spray gun as a powder or in a wire shape and is melted at the tip of the spray gun. The shaft surface is coated with the alloy covering at a supersonic speed, creating a like-new surface. The best-known types of thermal sprays are flame, arc spray, plasma spray coating, and high-velocity oxy-fuel. Each serves a different purpose and has its own advantages. There are a variety of coating materials that can be applied to the surface including nickel, stainless steel, carbide, and depending on the method, even polymeric materials and ceramics.

Benefits of Thermal Spray Metal Coating

There are many benefits to thermal spray reconditioning including:


Extending the lifetime of your shafts by making them more resistant to elements like heat and erosion and providing long-term corrosion protection


Allowing for almost any type of material or alloy to be used as the high-quality coating that’s applied onto the surface to be coated
Serving as a more affordable option compared to buying new equipment
Allowing for the application of thin and dense coatings
Providing high bond strength for long-term effectiveness
All of these benefits mean that whatever the application and material you need, thermal spray services are your most affordable, durable option. Choose us as your thermal metal spray provider and we can assist you no matter the material or project requirements.
