Our new SprayCamPPV system is the simple, low cost particle velocity and plume position measurement system designed specifically for Thermal Spray. Any changes in primary and secondary gas flow rates, carrier gas injection flow rates, particle size distributions, anode and cathode wear will cause a detectable change in the position of the particles in the plasma. SprayCam will detect this change and alert the operator. In addition SprayCamPPV can measure the particle velocity in all thermal spray processes. Just 10 seconds before and after a part is sprayed will give you the confidence that your torch is operating optimally. SprayCamPPV is also useful in optimizing deposition efficiency and powder injection for new processes.
