Properties and performance of coatings deposited by the Cold Gas Spraying process are affected by particle properties, which can be changed by using various spraying parameters. Different diagnostic systems can be applied to investigate these parameters. By means of the commercial SprayWatch system, particle properties (velocity, temperature, size, number density) can be measured and evaluated. In comparison the Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) system determines velocity and number density. Using both systems the velocity has been measured for a range of parameters, including different materials, different gas properties and nozzles thus offering the possibility to compare the two different diagnostic systems. In the present paper only the results of different gas properties will be shown.
