Bay State's PG-Series PlasmaGun produces high-velocity, high-temperature plasma for the
application of ceramic, metal, and refractory materials to a variety of prepared surfaces. PlasmaGun's superior coatings are resistant to wear and high temperatures. Moreover, their
electrical properties range from insulation to superconduction.
The PG-Series PlasmaGun incorporates a unique patented nozzle design that is especially effective when using argon as the plasma-forming gas. The many advantages of argon use
include lower noise levels, longer nozzle life, reduced substrate heating, and lower electrical power consumption. However, the PG-Series PlasmaGun is not limited to the use of argon.
Equipped with appropriate nozzle and cathode, it yields the same superior results using nitrogen, nitrogen/hydrogen, or other combinations of plasma-forming gases.
The PG-Series PlasmaGun is designed for high performance at Iow cost. Its built-in efficiency offers the following benefits:
- Reduced power consumption and the ability to operate with smaller and less costly power supplies
- Reduced gas consumption
- Increased nozzle life--as much as ten times or more using argon gas
- High deposition efficiency for greatest surface coverage per pound of material
- Lower noise levels
Easy to Use
The widespread acceptance of the PG-Series PlasmaGun can be attributed to its reliability and ease of use. For
example, it can be hand-held or machine-mounted. The nozzles and cathodes can be changed or serviced without
disassembling the entire gun. This built-in simplicity lets an operator take advantage of the many unique nozzle
options available to control the exposure of the powder particles in the plasma stream. Nozzles can be changed by
merely removing a simple threaded retaining ring. Cathodes can be removed or adjusted simply by loosening or tightening a collet.
Extended Electrode Life
The ingenious design of the PG-Series PlasmaGun increases electrode life significantly. The typical user can anticipate hundreds of hours of electrode life with no loss of deposition or spray efficiency.
Engineered to Stand the Test of Time
In a world where too many products are engineered for obsolescence, few can claim viability for over thirty years.
The PlasmaGun is such a product. Its interchangeable anodes, adjustable cathodes and adjustable powder
features have been on the job in industry world-wide for over a quarter of a century. Its enduring design means a
PlasmaGun of 1960 can be easily upgraded to include today's design improvements. Moreover, at Bay State, we do not change a successful design--we enhance it.
