This refers to a way to significantly elongate the life of equipment by providing it with anti-wear and anti-corrosion treatment of HVOF thermal spray used as a coating because it enhances the surface qualities and dimensions of equipment.

Metals, alloys, and ceramics are used to produce the HVOF coating, the resulting coating is more resilient and attaches to the material below it, and therefore it can withstand wear and corrosion. At Watson Grinding and MFG. there is a variety of high-quality coating materials that are tailored to meet customers’ needs because we foster a customer-driven reliable service.

The benefits of HVOF coating:

In summary, the application of HVOF coating atop your equipment avails you with the following benefits:

  • The performance of your equipment is enhanced.
  • Your equipment in resilient in the face of harsh chemical environments
  • The equipment has a better ability to function in varying temperature ranges
  • The equipment has enhanced electrical properties
  • You get lower costs
  • The lifespan of the equipment is significantly increased
  • Increased efficiency of equipment

Application process and materials used for HVOF

The advantage of using thermal spray coating is the freedom it allows when it comes to materials and processes and at the end of the day, it is an environmentally friendly process, unlike other plating processes.

The materials used for HVOF are metals, alloys, ceramics, plastic, and composite all depending on the peculiarity of what is needed.

The process:

Oxygen and fuel are combined and ignited in a combustion chamber to produce a gas with high pressure passing through a nozzle to heat up and accelerate the coating material in powder form to the surface of the component. The result becomes a thin HVOF coat of overlapping platelets.
