High velocity oxygen fuel Gun

High Velocity Oxygen Fuel Spray (HVOF) The high velocity oxygen fuel spray HVOF process is a relatively recent addition to the family of thermal spray processes. HVOF uses a supersonic jet,  the speed of particle impact on the substrate is much higher, resulting in improved coating characteristics. The mechanism differs from flame spraying by an expansion of the jet at the exit of the gun. Fuel gases of propane, propylene, acetylene, hydrogen and natural gas can be used, as well as liquid fuels such as kerosene.

HVOF High Velocity Oxygen Fuel Thermal Spray system

What is HVOF spray?
HVOF is a High Velocity Oxygen Fuel.  The HVOF is a combustion process.  Using Hydrogen, Propane, Natural Gas or a liquid fuel such as kerosene.

The combustion process generates a very high velocity gas stream. The gas stream propels the powder particles at near supersonic speeds. 

HVOF key benefits are the extremely dense and low oxide coatings. Low oxides:  Since the powder particles spend less time in the flame, and lower flame temperature 3,000 °C compared with plasma spray APS.  HVAF (high velocity air fuel) has an even lower flame temperature than HVOF, and produces coatings that are even less oxidized, and more ductile.

As well as producing excellent bond strength, some HVOF coatings can be sprayed very thick due to the exceptionally high velocities producing coatings in compression instead of tension.
