A Splats Obtaining System for Thermal Spray Deposits


Article Preview

The image of thermal spray splats is difficult to collect due to its high velocity of droplets. Especial in High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) process, the process present higher velocity of flame jet correlated to other thermal spray process. The system presents at this article describes a useful splats catching method to obtaining splats during thermal spray deposited. Capabilities and advantages of using this instrument are declared at this theme. The final result presented the instrument caught the single spot of HVOF sprayed splats at sub-micro second. Splats of spot were dispersed well on the glass substrate at the obtaining system, and presented various information of droplets impact at different location on the substrate.
