Thermal spraying is generally used to create coatings that exhibit certain material properties. Plasma spraying is widely used in many industries, especially if ceramic coatings need to be applied. In plasma spraying, the powder to be sprayed is melted by a plasma jet and propelled onto the workpiece surface. The plasma is produced by an arc which is constricted and ignites in argon, helium, nitrogen, hydrogen or mixtures of these gases. This causes the gases to dissociate and ionise; they attain high discharge velocities and, on recombination, transfer their thermal energy to the spray particles.
Gas purity and a suitable gas supply system is one of the key factors impacting on the gun lifetime in plasma spraying. We are ideally equipped to meet the application challenges of plasma spraying specialists. On the one hand, we can assure the highest levels of gas purity to extend the lifetime of plasma hardware. On the other, we offer premium gas fittings and installations with purging capabilities to avoid contamination during operation and ensure that impurities are removed from your pipeline every time a cylinder or bundle is replaced. In addition, our application experts would be delighted to advise on the setup best suited to meeting your productivity needs.
LINSPRAY is our dedicated offer for thermal spraying. Building on customised gas mixtures and supply concepts, we also provide all the necessary equipment and supply systems to ensure the safe installation and handling of all gases and mixtures at all times.
In addition, we have an extensive network of engineers who are able to provide guidance on the best solution to meet your productivity, quality and cost requirements. This service includes training on safety or coating applications.
