Dear Mr.Allen,
I have carried out many Aec Sprayed babbit bearing jobs.
On thin compressor seals Arc spray works best because of low heat in put. How ever now i prefer gas flame spray over arc spray as it gives less fumes. In any case babbit spray is hazardous and needs lot of safety, while pouring u must control the heat of the job
