Eutectic Canada: new state-of-the-art gas atomiser in full production
Eutectic Canada launches today its next-generation Gas Atomizer program that enables the company to produce the highest quality Thermal Spray & PTA coating powders in its ISO-9001 certified manufacturing facility in Granby, Quebec.
“The new gas atomiser reflects our ongoing commitment to bring the latest technology to our customers. We trust this investment will strengthen our leadership in both NAFTA and international markets,” says Gordon Roseborough, President and CEO of Eutectic Canada.
With the evolution of recent technology for Plasma Transferred Arc Welding (PTAW), laser-clad coatings and the need to reduce environmental impact when compared to hard chrome plating, there is an increasing demand for gas-atomized powders. The gas atomizer will enhance the development and in-house production of industry leading wear solutions.
Eutectic Canada is now producing quality metal and metal-matrix powders to provide higher cost benefits and longer component life cycles. These powders are manufactured using the latest gas atomisation process, producing perfectly spherical particles that result in high density, porosity-free deposits. The unique alloy properties require minimal heat input and achieve high deposition rates.
The alloy range includes self-fluxing alloys in Nickel, Cobalt and Copper, as well as metals and metal alloys to meet ASTM and customer specifications. The gas atomiser has also a special feature to allow high pressure atomisation for fine powder production.
Castolin Eutectic meets the most demanding applications with a variety of specialized coating technologies including Spray Fusion, PTAW, Laser cladding and HVOF. The new gas atomizer now produces superior quality powders for enhanced optimization of these processes. High load – high wear industries in the oil & gas, mining, forestry, agriculture, marine, steel and cement sectors can now benefit from Eutectic Canada’s investment in technology.
