Arc Flame Spray Application
Fusion Babbitting Co. uses Arc Flame Spray to build up metal of worn components, such as bearing outside diameter and housings, which can then be machined to original specifications.
The Arc Flame Spray Process is the introduction of two electrically conductive wires (from 1.6mm to 2mm in diameter) that are melted by means of an electric arc process operating up to 350 amps.
The molten material produced by the electric arc is them atomized by the introduction of compressed air, which propels the molten metal towards the surface requiring the buildup of new material.
The molten particles impacting and adhering to the target surface rapidly solidifying to form a very strong and dense coating on the original base material. This style of arc flame spray process is called the "cold process" (relative to the base metal/material being coated) as the base material's temperature can be kept low during processing to avoid distortion or warping damage and or metallurgical changes in the base material.
This process provides low operating costs, with high spray rates and greater efficiencies for spraying larger areas and allowing for higher production rates.
The Arc Flame Spray process allows Fusion to apply other arc spray metals, like bronze, steel and cast iron.
