Spray Rate
Dear Gordon,

Need your help. How can we calculate the spray rate for stellite 6, WCCo/Cr, CrC and others materials?. Can you give me the details or formula to calculate our cost while doing HVOF?

I need to represent it to my bosses.

Kindly advice.

Hi Minja

Spray rate is usually part of the process parameters and to establish the best spray rate for your particular needs really requires process/coating development work. No doubt that theoretical formula/models exist, but doubt they are very practical.

I got a feeling you are after powder consumption as a posed to spray rate Wink The best way is from practical experience or doing trial runs - failing this, information from your powder product bulletin/equipment process manual may allow you to estimate powder required for a specific job. Look for "Powder Required lb/ft2/0.001" (kg/m2/0.1mm)" and if time is important "Coverage ft2/hr/0.001" (m2/hr/0.1mm)". If these are not shown then then same calculations can be made from spray rate, deposit efficiency and coating weight/density.
