The required plasma spray is administered through a flow enhancing nozzle. The required hvof coating (high velocity oxygen fuel) spray is administered through a gun that utilizes nitrogen gas. In both instances, autonomous solutions are being used and the industrial processes carried out are measured in line with AS 9100 standards. The plasma forming gas produced is accompanied by a high KW electric arc. After reaching a phenomally high temperature of ten thousand degrees Fahrenheit, ceramic or metallic powders are produced, and these are then injected into the device’s exit plume.

After this, the powders become plasticized in hot gas and are propelled at high velocity to the targeted surface area. The HVOF spray uses an oxygen fuel mixture. The nitrogen gas used serves as a carrier gas. In this process, fuel gas meets oxygen through a siphoned system located at the front of the spray gun used. After this encounter, the gases produced are ejected from the gun’s nozzle and ignited externally. The ignited gasses form a round flame configuration that surrounds the powder forming spray.

What you have read so far is pretty intense. Those industrialists with a conscience veering towards implementing sustainable production methods to cut carbon emissions and promote a cleaner industrial environment can take heart in the fact that the designers and manufacturers of the patented products that go beyond just plasma sprays and high velocity oxygen fuel technologies are vigorously working on new technologies which result in cleaner emissions and more efficient use, whether deliberately done or fortuitously produced.

A great beneficiary of these technologies is that of the paint contracting companies that have all previously come under fire for emitting highly noxious materials during their protective and decorative coating work.
