Arc Spray Equipment & Systems
Corrosion Control Using Large Diameter Wires
High production Thermion® Arc Spray Systems using either 3/16" or 1/8" diameter Aluminum, Zinc, or Zn/Al. These metal spraying systems are designed to be used in portable field applications such as bridges, water tanks, transmission towers, wind mills, light poles, etc., where access is limited and turnaround times are short.
- Precision Arc 3.2 Anti Corrosion- Moderate Production - Throughout production rates of up to 80 lbs. of material an hour over 160 sq. ft. at a thickness of +/- 10 mils.
- Precision Arc 4.8 Anti Corrosion - High Production - Throughout production rates of up to 189 lbs. of material an hour over 472 sq. ft. at a thickness of +/- 10 mils.
- Precision Arc 5.0 - Highest Production, Low Energy! Thermion's Newest Model - Designed to combat dust. Uses spraying wire of diameter 3/16" (4.8mm) for very high deposition rates of 70% DE at 700 amperes and 100% duty cycle even in high demand robot or machine automation, or up to 1000 amperes in most manual spraying operations.

AVD Metalizing Systems: Engineered Coatings / Hardwires Both Solid and Cored
The AVD series metalizing systems are ideally suited to spray hardwires for use in electrical, anti-fretting and wear, reclamation of dimension, clearance control and environmental applications used in manufacturing and remanufacturing. Our unique AVD technology allows for successful spraying of 1/16", 2 mm, 3/32" aluminum, bronze, chrome, nickel, stainless steel, tungsten, etc. Our most recent advancements allow for the spraying of 1/8" dia. hardwires. This will double, if not triple, the production rates experienced previously in these specialized industries.
- AVD 250 - Thermion's newest AVD spray system - Designed specifically as an economical solution for applications with lighter production needs. Intended for shops that metalize as a sideline business as well as startup operations.
- AVD 350 - Engineering Coatings, Anti Corrosion, Restoration - Normal Production - Throughout production rates of up to 20-30 lbs. an hour using 1/16" or 3/32" dia. solid or cored hardwires.
- AVD 450 - Engineering Coatings, Moderate Production - Anti Corrosion, Restoration - High Production - Throughout production rates of up to 80 lbs. of material an hour using1/16", 3/32" or 1/8" dia. solid or cored hardwires.
- AVD 456HD- Power Supply: ( N/S) Conventional 450 Amp. Incoming power; 3 phase multi Voltage at 60 Hz. Wire Capabilities: All Conductive Wires; 1/8 (3.2mm), 3/32;" (2.3mm), 2mm or 1/16;" (1.6mm)
Mini Arc Spray Unit
Our AVD 150 will readily spray aluminum, zn/al, and zinc. This compact arc spray unit weighs about 35 lbs. and is portable, so it can easily be moved around either the worksite or shop by a single person. Our mini metallizing spray system is used for small area touch up, field welds, galvanizing repair, automotive restoration, etc. It is designed to use a minimal amount of services by way of air (20 cfm) and incoming power (single phase).
- AVD 150 - Automotive Restoration; Touch Up Field/Shop Work - Set to spray 1/16" dia. material.
About Metalizing Technology Used in Thermion® Arc Spray Systems
Thermion's exclusive inventions for thermal spraying (metalizing) improved the twin-wire arc spray coating, metalizing process in coating quality, productivity, portability, and adaptability. Thermion's thermal spray technology is suited to coat products using different metals such as Zinc and Aluminum. The thickness of the coating can vary, and the metalizing technology provides many benefits for manufacturers including:
- High Deposition Metalizing - Maintains 70% deposit efficiency while spraying zinc at 189lbs/hr (86 kg/hr).
- Arc Shorting Control - This technology was patented due to its unique ability to control arc shorting in the arc spray process, therefore, maintaining a steady arc.
- AVD or Arc Voltage Drive - Eliminates arc shorting and automatically adjusts wire feed to maintain a perfect arc which improves coating density and eliminates coating defects due to arc sputtering.
- Six Roll Drive - This drive guarantees a non-slip positive wire feed with knurled feed rollers then removes the knurl effect when feeding continues through the liners and tips.
- TH604 Non-Slip Coatings - This coating containing both aluminum and ceramics provides long-term corrosion and wear protection for a non-slip or wear resistant coating for all substrates.
- Combination Leads - These leads accommodate the wire, power, and air enables the front end assembly to be light yet handle amperages necessary to perform High Deposition Metalizing/Arc Spray.
