Other Industries

Reclamation and re-engineering of a wide range of rotating and moving parts from machines of all kinds, including: Road and rail vehicles, ships, aircraft, pumps, valves, printing presses, electric motors, paper making machines, chemical plant, food machinery, mining and quarrying machinery, chemical, agricultural, mining, molds and dies, wire drawing, earthmovers, machine tools, power generation and aerospace turbine repair, landing gear (chrome replacement) and virtually any equipment which is subject to wear, erosion or corrosion. This is done using either arc spray, flame spray or HVOF systems to spray steels, nickel alloys, carbides, stainless alloys, bronzes, copper and many other materials.

New components which benefit from the enhanced surface properties that thermal spraying provides, include: Gate and ball valves, rock drilling bits, and down hole tools for the oil and gas and petrochemicals industry, hydraulic piston rods, print rollers, fluid seals, aerospace combustion chambers, turbine blades. Thermal sprayed coatings are used on a vast range of components which operate in adverse environments where, erosion, wear, corrosion or heat, conspire to reduce component life. Component life is significantly prolonged by using Arc Spray, Flame Spray, Plasma Spray, or HVOF systems to apply metals, ceramics and carbides.
