Spray Drying

Spray drying is a critical process in the generation of high-performance thermal spray powders for various end-use applications. It is key in ensuring the homogeneity and uniformity of metal powders intended for deposition onto a wide range of substrates in a semi-molten state. Each of these properties is a vital metric in the eventual functionality of deposited coatings. The performance of automotive components, heat management systems, and numerous other products can stem back to this preparatory stage of raw material processing.

H.C. Starck Solutions has succeeded in synthesizing the highest quality refractory powders from a broad range of technology metals, including molybdenum (Mo) and tungsten (W). These advanced thermal sprays serve the purpose of fixing non-uniform surfaces and protecting against the destructive effects of erosion and general wear-and-tear.

The success of H.C. Starck Solutions thermal spray powders depends on the quality of the underlying raw material, which can be compromised by spray drying. H.C. Starck Solutions spray drying capabilities support the generation of highly-engineered products with tight control of particle morphology, size distribution, and mechanical strength. The result: Thermal sprays with outstanding sphericity and flowability, ensuring even coatings of myriad substrate materials, even for contiguous layers.
