The wire is fed in to the front of gun through air driven turbine. Fuel gas and oxygen is properly and safely mixed in siphon plug gas head assembly which provides combustible heat source. The
molten metal is hence atomized and propelled by compressed air in the form of fine metal spray for coating on job surface.
With universal, forged-aluminum gas head it can be adapted to use any fuel gas. The standard gun is set up to spray 1/8” wire using acetylene as the fuel gas suitable hardware is available for handling all standard wire sizes ranging from 3/16” down to 20 gauges.
The controlled speed range of the Type 12M Gun is from about 1-1/2 feet of wire per minute with standard gears to approximately 45 feet per minute with the special, easily installed, high speed gear set. The high speed gear set is for continuous high speed spraying of the lower melting point metals such as Babbitt, tin and zinc. The entire system (except the compressor), can be mounted on a cart for mobile applications and field repair work.
