The Metallisation MK73-FS is an oxygen-propane fuelled flamespray system giving un-rivalled anti-corrosion coatings. The ‘FS’ stands for Free-Standing as the new control board can be free standing or wall mounted.

The lightweight, well-balanced, robust pistol offers the quickest spray rates on the market, saving you both time and money. Systems can be supplied as continuous spray or, more commonly, with a unique stop/start function that allows the operator to stop spraying but keep the flame lit without damage to the pistol.

New in 2014 is a more ‘site friendly’ control panel. It is more robust and offers further protection to the flowmeter and ARF unit. It can be wall mounted or will free-stand on the floor. The flow of hoses is neater than the previous unit.

The new control panel is also better suited to using in long supplies format, which is becoming an increasing requirement for site installations. See ‘Supplies Packs and ‘Control Board’ section for more details.

The pistol can be further enhanced by fitting a deflected spray extension. This unit allows the operator to spray at right angles and get into difficult to access spray areas, such as between pipes or close to brackets. This enables more areas to be sprayed and with a better quality coating than may have previously been possible. The extension uses the same consumable parts as a standard pistol.
