The MSSA Puddle Torch (also known as a Powder Torch) is a specially designed Oxy Acetylene torch is used for powder welding. The work piece is heated with the torch. The powder is introduced into the gas stream from the integral powder hopper and then transferred to the work piece through a flame.
This process is similar to the Oxy Acetylene process with the exception that the hardfacing takes place at lower temperatures. This minimises oxidation and distortion of the work piece ad enables easy surfacing of edges. By spraying molten metal directly onto affected parts it is possible to efficiently minimise wear and corrosion, create superior metallurgical bonds, correct machining errors by building up and re-matching and to repair broken cast iron parts.
MSSA Powder Torch - Manage "Impossible" Repairs
Do you have worn or broken parts? Here’s a way to manage those “impossible” repair jobs.
- Cost effectively
Using the MSSA flame spray technique, even a novice welder can salvage broken or worn out parts –even Cast Iron.
Powder flame spray welding is recognised as probably the best and only means of repairing and protecting metal components. By spraying molten metal directly onto affected parts it is possible to efficiently minimise wear and corrosion, create superior metallurgical bonds, correct machining errors by building up and re-machining and to repair broken cast iron parts. Not only can you repair and salvage but you can also enhance new components to give better service life at low cost.
