HVOF THERMAL SPRAY process technology adoption by ASSOMAC
High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Coating is a Thermal Spray Coating process where oxygen & fuel gas are ignited in particular atmosphere. This process is used to improve or restore a component’s surface properties or dimensions, thus extending equipment’s life by significantly increasing its resistance to wear, corrosion & erosion.
Molten or semi-molten materials are sprayed out to the surface by mean of high temperature, high velocity gas stream, producing a dense spray coating which can be ground to a very high surface finish. The utilization of the HVOF Coating technique allows the application of coating materials such as metals, alloys and even ceramics to produce a coating of exceptional hardness & thus giving substantial resistance to corrosion & wear.
Assomac installed this system in-house for its wire drawing drums / cone rings & other components which help giving a very long life to the components besides giving a very smooth surface finish of wire. The plant is purchase from Sulzermetco & ABB (Robot)
The main advantage of HVOF Coating :
- Improves the performance of the component.
- Enables the components to operate within Harsh Chemical environments.
- Reduces the cost of maintenance.
- Enables the components to operate in higher /lower temperatures.
- Improved efficiency of machine.
- Improves life of mating components.
- Saves Electrical Energy.
PROCESS FLOW CHART OF HVOF
As with all Thermal Spray Coating processes, HVOF Coating material is heated& accelerated by a gas stream to a component’s surface, to attain better properties. With the HVOF Coating process, the gas stream is produced by mixing & igniting oxygen & fuel (gas or liquid) in a combustion chamber & allowing the high pressure gas to accelerate through a Thermal Spray Process.
Thermal Spray Process
The following process instructions are intended for use as a guide, for coating of carbide powders using “HVOF” Thermal Spray Coating. The instruction contain the list and description of production techniques and operation needs to accomplish the process of applying Thermal Spray Coating on components as well as the list of main types of coating defect and their remedies.
In recent years, high velocity Oxy Fuel (HVOF) Spraying has been considered an asset to the family of Thermal Spray Processes especially for the materials with melting point below 3000°C to 3300°C. It has proven successful since it shows advantages in density and bond strength making it attractive for many wear and corrosion resistance applications. Its high coating quality results from the use of a hot combustion & new high speed gas jet for thermal spraying. These coatings have environmental advantages compared to chemically / electro-chemically formed coatings.
Tungsten Carbide based powders are widely used in the HVOF Spraying System. These are used to produce dense, high hardness and excellent wear resistance coatings generally to combat the erosion and corrosion occurring in hydro power plant and pumps wire industries. In applications where abrasive or corrosive wear resistance is of primary importance. Wc-co (Tungsten Carbide) with and without nickel or chrome is used.
HVOF Spraying does not have these limitations. HVOF Thermal Spray coating has a mechanical bond. The bond strength can be of high or 12000 psi, which is attained by the high kinetic energy of the particles.
Thermal Spray Coating is an attractive technique as it offers a wide choice of materials & processes that have a reduced impact on the environment when compared to conventional plating processes as explained above.
