This paper summarizes the results of several studies on the velocity of powder particles during plasma spraying. It presents and compares experimental data collected by numerous authors for a wide range of materials. An analysis of the data shows how plasma jets are affected by stream velocity, process parameters, and the density and size of powder particles. It also sheds light on the maximum velocity that particles can attain in different plasma streams.
