Thermal Spray and Multiphase Flow Lab

Equipped with various thermal spraying processes including a 3MB plasma spray system, Axial III plasma spray with Nanofeeder fully computerized system, high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) and high velocity air fuel (HVAF) spray coating systems and liquid accelerated cold spray (LACS), offers state-of-the-art technology to engineer advanced functional coatings for growing demand in industry and research. In addition, the extensive collection of in-flight micro- and nanodroplet / particle diagnostic systems including DPV2000, Accuraspray, Spraytec, Particle Image Velocimetery (PIV), Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer (PDPA) and High speed imaging and shadowgraphy permits to assess the particles/droplets conditions in all spray processes. These tools are used for process control, process optimization and validation of process modeling approaches.
