DC Plasma Spray
DC-plasma spray systems are used primarily for the application of high melting temperature ceramic coatings. The system works by ionising a plasma gas using extremely high currents, to create a plasma flume at a temperature of around 30,000°C. Avweld have Australia’s most modern and most technologically advanced plasma spray system.
Installed in December 2013, the system is one of the most energy efficient, fastest systems available in the world. With this system Avweld have the capacity to economically apply all common ceramic materials, for applications including thermal barrier coatings, electrically resistant coatings, wear-resistant coatings and corrosion resistant coatings.
Avweld’s Plasma and HVOF systems are supplied by Flame Spray Technologies of Holland. www.fst.nl
