The influence of spray parameters on particle with the improved plasma gun was studied by using SpryWatch-2i System. The results show that the particle velocity increases and exceeds the velocity of sound when using a new designed nozzle (C2 nozzle) during the plasma spraying. Under a certain condition, the particle velocity varies as the spray distance rise firstly, decline then, as the primary gas pressure increases, the particle velocity increases, the particle temperature drops firstly then increase, the velocity increase a little. But as the steadily increase of the flow rate, the influence on the particle temperature drops, the influence of arc voltage on particle velocity and temperature is slightly. Arc current influent little on particle temperature, but the particle velocity increase in a range.
