Metal Facing System Makes Handy Repairs Of Worn Parts
Building up surfaces on worn parts is a lot cheaper than buying new parts in many cases and this flame "facing" system that installs easily on any oxy fuel cutting torch can do the job quickly and easily.
Cronatron's PyroFacer system consists of a standard CW 2001 torch handle, a PyroSpray attachment and a #20 tip that's suitable for general applications. It has the capacity to deposit 5 lbs. of heated alloy per hour on worn surfaces. The tip rotates 360 degrees to permit spraying interior surfaces.
The PyroSpray attachment works with any of eight special alloy powders, which come in 1 and 2-lb. bottles. The system is ideal for building up worn surfaces on key ways, shafts, clutches, engine blocks, cams, pump impellers, gears, augers, feed screws, conveyor chains, plow and disc blades.
The system saves machining time be-cause you can shape the metal as you apply it, the company says. A deposit ranging in thickness from .010 to .125 in. can rap-idly be laid down, according to the company.
The basic kit, including various tips, two rosebuds for preheating and surfacing, torch handle, PyroFacer attachment, cutting attachment, four check valves, a regulator and a bottle of PyroSpray 860 sells for $700 to $800.
