Ethanol-based eGun system

hvof gun and system
The eGun™ System reduces operational cost and increase application efficiency.  The eGun™ is a liquid fuel HVOF gun that uses ethanol as a fuel delivering repeatable and reproducible coatings, eliminating the ash formation and reducing toxic emissions and odor.

Main Benefits
  • Improves quality delivering uniform coatings.
  • Reduces coating costs
  • Provides efficient combustion generating more heat transfer to the powder.
  • Reduces between 30% to 50% the use of oxygen, (comparing to conventional kerosene processes).
  • Reduces the energy consumption for the gun cooling process in up to 50%   (comparing to conventional kerosene processes).
  • Grants high level of control over the balance between kinetic and thermal energy.

Powder Feeders for Thermal Spray applications

accurate and repeatable powder feeder for thermal spray aerospace industry

FST-10 & FST-20
The FST-10 Single unit has one powder feed line, while the FST 20 Double comes with two powder feed lines that can be operated individually or simultaneously. Easy to operate and maintain, the FST-10 / FST-20 can work as a stand-alone unit or integrated with a myriad of available thermal spray, laser, or welding systems, such as the FST MP-50 Multi-Process Coating.
