Corrosion and wear resistant surfaces are needed for machine parts in many industries. The HVOF liquid fuel process supplies this protection by producing very thick, high-density coatings.

Process description

For High Velocity Oxygen (liquid) Fuel (HVOF) spraying, we use an oxygen-kerosene mixture. We axially feed the coating material, in powdered form, through the gun, generally using nitrogen as a carrier gas. The fuel is thoroughly mixed with oxygen within the gun and the mixture is then ejected from a nozzle and ignited outside the gun. The ignited gasses surround and uniformly heat the powdered spray material as it exits the gun and is propelled onto the workpiece surface.

Heat source Fuel (liquid) and Oxygen
Material Powder (Metal)
Arc temperature Approx. 2,800 °C
Particle velocity 400 – 800 m/s
Spray performance 70 – 200 g/min

Key characteristics

Produces coatings that are very clean, hard, and dense with fine, homogeneous structures
Coatings are tenaciously bonded to the substrate
Has low compressive stress, which results in very thick coatings

Typical applications

Gate valves
Pelton turbines
Ball valves
