Industry Spotlight: Agriculture
At A&A Coatings, we provide stellar thermal spray coating solutions to a wide range of businesses in the agriculture industry. We have the capability to protect and improve a myriad of industrial tools and machines, including compressors, pumps, and harvester blades. Our thermal spray technologies are designed to extend the service lifespan of your equipment; you no longer need to worry about costly replacement or repair procedures! Let’s find out how thermal spray coatings are used in the agriculture industry.
Who Uses our Protective Coating Solutions in the Agriculture Industry?
For starters, farmers and farming cooperatives use our specialized coating solutions. They own double-suction split pumps and barrel casing pumps that require stronger resistance to corrosion. If you are looking for thermal spray coatings that are suitable for highly wear-resistant applications, look no further than A&A Coatings. Our custom coatings can be applied on agricultural blades, which require extra toughness. You can also rest assure that we have the ability to increase coating wear resistance by blending carbides into self-fluxing alloys.
How are Thermal Spray Coatings Applied in the Agricultural Sector?
If you are wondering how we can apply thermal spray coatings in the agriculture industry, the answer is spray and fuse hardfacing. In this thermal spray coating process, a spray gun that can spray combustion powder is used. The gun will be use to deposit a range of materials (powders) onto a substrate. The common powders include WC, W, Fe, Bo, Co, Cr, and Ni. To ensure the coating and substrate fused together flawlessly, you can expect your part to be heated up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit in a furnace. At A&A Coatings, our coatings for agricultural components can have a hardness of up to 80Rc. Yes, our spray and fuse hardfacing process produces coatings that are extremely hard and have stellar impact and chipping resistance.
Common Agricultural Components and Systems that Need Thermal Spray Coatings
Since our inception, we have been formulating unique coatings in our laboratory. Whether the goal was to minimize surface wear or fretting, you can expect to get coatings that are ideal for ground-engaging applications and more. Below is a quick look at the common components and systems that we have handled before:
- Agricultural threshing equipment
- Harvester blades
- Aeration systems
- Mechanical aerators
- Turbo compressors
- Ring section pumps
- Single-stage centrifugal pumps
We fully understand our clients’ need to maintain optimal operational efficiency. That’s why we use specialized thermal spraying processes to improve the state of agricultural components and systems, and ensure they are no longer susceptible to premature failures.
