The Rokide® flame spray system operates with a rugged, dependable, state-of-the-art electric drive unit. The ease of operation and precise rod speed control provide greater productivity along with lower operational costs when compared to other drive units.
The electric drive provides for positive rod feed throughout the entire speed range, with digital rod speed readout and automatic voltage adjustments. With a design that gives this equipment worldwide operational capability, the electric drive is another key feature that makes the Rokide® flame spray system economical to purchase, install, operate and maintain.
The Rokide® flame spray system is unique in the industry because it uses ceramic oxide Rokide® rods as the consumable for maximum coating performance. The rods are melted in the patented spray unit, which then projects fully molten particles onto a working substrate at high velocity. The molten ceramic particles cannot leave the spray unit until in a fully molten state. These particles have high kinetic energy and high thermal mass, thus imparting a strong, dense coating.
The Rokide® system starts with a rugged, dependable unit with an easy-to-use lever operation. This feature, conveniently located on the spray unit main body, controls the electric drive motor and gases. Then, an oxygen-acetylene flame melts the rod consumables. The unit accommodates 3/16” (4.75 mm) and 1/4” (6.35 mm) diameter rods and can also easily adapt to spray 3/16” (4.75 mm) Flexicords.
Saint-Gobain offers Rokide® rods and Flexicords in a broad range of ceramic, tungsten carbide and special alloy compositions, allowing our customers to choose the optimal material for their application & process conditions.
The Rokide® flame spray system is very portable, so coating applications are possible without difficulty in both job shop and field environments.
