Flame spray is a process that uses an oxy-fuel flame to melt wires and in some cases powders or ceramic rods. The molten material is then atomised with compressed air to create a spray stream that applies the coating onto the surface being sprayed. Anti-corrosion coatings are typically applied with oxy-propane systems. Engineering coatings are typically applied with oxy-acetylene systems. Where propane is not available, oxy-acetylene systems can apply anti-corrosion coatings. Flame spray systems are commonly manually operated but it is possible to semi-automate or fully-automate the process if required.Metallisation have a full range of wire, powder and ceramic rod flame spray systems in hand-held or automated versions.
