PlasmaGun® System Water Control Options

Bay State PlasmaGun® Systems require one of the following options:

  • FS-100 Water Flow Switch Kit
  • WCS-300 Water Control System
  • BP-300 Booster Pump Assembly
  • HE-Series Refrigerated Heat Exchangers

The paragraphs below describe each of these options:

FS-100 Water Flow Switch Kit   The FS-100 Water Flow Switch Kit controls and monitors the water used for cooling the PlasmaGun® system.  It contains a solenoid valve, screen type filter, pressure gauge and water flow switch that interrupts system operation should water flow fall below a preset level.

WCS-300 Water Control System The WCS-300 Water Control System controls and monitors the water used for cooling the PlasmaGun® system. It contains a solenoid valve, screen type filter, pressure gauge and water flow switch that interrupts system operation should water flow fall below a preset level. The WCS-300 also contains a thermometer and GPM flow indicator that allow actual readings to be observed at all times.

BP-300 Booster Pump Assembly The BP-300 Booster Pump Assembly is a self-contained pumping unit that will operate with any Bay State PlasmaGun® system. The integrated unit contains a quiet, high-pressure centrifugal pump, solenoid shut-off valve, screen type filter, pressure gauge and water flow switch. The BP-300 is required where low water pressure prevails, or where the PlasmaGun® system is used with cooling towers or other devices with insufficient flow and pressure.

HE-Series Refrigerated Heat Exchangers The HE-Series Refrigerated Heat Exchangers are an air-cooled mobile packaged chiller which are "tailor made" for use with plasma thermal spray systems. Certain engineering modifications have been incorporated into reliable packaged chillers manufactured specifically for Bay State Thermal Spray Systems. The Heat Exchanger is especially necessary when the use of demineralized water in a closed loop system is required for cooling the PlasmaGun®, in areas where the water supply is "hard" or contains heavy deposits of minerals.  Plasma systems operating without heat exchangers and utilizing water of poor quality can precipitate the minerals out of the water and deposit them onto the insides of the PlasmaGun® cooling passages.  This reduces heat transfer and causes the gun to run hotter, which in turn shortens electrode and gun component life.
