Thermal Spraying is an excellent repair process for worn surfaces such as (but not limited to): bearing journals (internal and external), seal fits, pump packing sleeves, mechanical seal shaft sleeves, pump impeller skirts, impeller wear rings, and sleeve bearing fits. Don’t throw your worn parts away; improve them with thermal spray and cut down on unnecessary replacement costs!
During the coating there is no distortion of the part being coated. The part temperature is generally below 250˚ F (121˚ C) during the spray operation; the substrate of the part that is being coated does not get altered metallurgically. Virtually any material can be applied to any metal substrate and some plastics (including ceramics, carbides, pure metals, and alloy metals), and the application time and finish machining is very fast, reducing costly downtime.
