At Forschungszentrum Jülich, we have used the Dpv extensively and successfully for over 15 years to better understand and optimize our thermal spray processes. Its unique capability to simultaneously measure the temperature, velocity and size of individual particles and to perform cross-sectional maps of the spray plume has had a tremendous impact on our activities in the fields of process development, parameter optimization and quality management.
