A Linde paper to be presented at this year’s International Thermal Spay Conference and Exposition held at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California, May 11- 14.
The paper will discuss why more and more thermal spray applications on high performance substrates require the use of special cooling methods to increase the cooling efficiency and, in turn, optimize the process.
“Whether a substrate should be cooled – and with what – has been a topic of discussion for some time,” says Werner Kroemmer, project manager, thermal spraying for Linde AG, in his paper:The Importance of Temperature Management in Thermal Spraying and the Respective Advantages of CO2for Cooling.
“On the one hand, it is not necessary for all applications, but it may be very important in other cases,” Kroemmer said. In his paper, he provides details on when the use of CO2 is required, including several examples which show clearly that cooling should be seen as an important parameter in the application as a whole.
