If you can get propylene, it will be your best solution. If you cannot get propylene, methane is also an option.

Any gas containing a significant butane content will give you troubles because it has a high vapor pressure (this is why you see liquid fuel coming out of your gun) and because it burns slower than propane and releases less heat.

Take care of using other gases with HVOF, because it work with very high pressure, so you can damage your system, using butane or no pure propane, otherwise to light an HVOF with methane it is necessary to use Hydrogen as lighting gas

Hi, I know the challenge and the problem, its really difficult in some markets to get Propane, and Propylene even more difficult.

H2 would be available, but probably not a great solution for a few reasons including cost.

Using LPG is not really effective as LPG is a commericial mix of gases, and not well regulated usually, and the vapor pressure will vary greatly.

You might investigate some of the following:


I have not used it, and am interested as well to know the field results from Asia.....

Can I use H2 in HVOF system built for propane without making any alteration if no what alteration are required
