MK66E-PCC Flame Spray System
The Metallisation MK66E-PCC is a fully automatic flame spray system with mass flow control, which offers the ability to produce the highest quality, repeatable coatings.
The system provides a fully automatic sequence of ignition, main flame, and wire feed. The wire feed is capable to be stopped during spraying without melting the wire back into the nozzle, even when left for extended periods. Fault sensors check for loss of flame, wire stoppages or wire out and can interlock to external automation to stop production and request assistance. These features ensure continued operation, improved coating quality and minimised downtime.
The system is PC controlled with distributed I/O, for extreme reliability, comprising a touch screen HMI (with optional keyboard), mass flow control gas box, and compact, electric drive pistol.

Accessories can help the operator and increase productivity.
Flame Spray Process
Flame spray is a process that uses an oxy-fuel flame to melt wires and in some cases powders or ceramic rods.
The molten material is then atomised with compressed air to create a spray stream that applies the coating onto the surface being sprayed. Anti-corrosion coatings are typically applied with oxy-propane systems.
Engineering coatings are typically applied with oxy-acetylene systems. Where propane is not available, oxy-acetylene systems can apply anti-corrosion coatings.
Flame spray systems are commonly manually operated but it is possible to semi-automate or fully-automate the process if required.
Metallisation have a full range of wire, powder and ceramic rod flame spray systems in hand-held or automated versions.
