Liquid fuel and oxygen are fed via a pre-mixing system and at high pressure into a combustion chamber where they burn to produce a hot, high pressure gas stream.

This is expanded through a laval type nozzle increasing the gas velocity to around 1,500 m/sec and the pressure to slightly above atmospheric. At this stage the powder can easily be injected into the gas stream. This gas stream heats and accelerates the powder particles within the confines of the secondary nozzles so that they impact with tremendous energy upon the substrate material. HVOF systems do not melt powders but only soften them. Because less heat is imparted to the particles and dwell times are very short, oxidation and decomposition are minimal in HVOF coatings.
