Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

What is claimed is:

1. A cold spray nozzle assembly, comprising:

a conduit for carrying at least one of a heated gas and a powder;

a nozzle; and

a compression tube fitting connecting the nozzle to the

conduit .

2. The assembly of claim 1, wherein the compression tube fitting comprises a receiving fitting attached to the conduit and receiving an end of the nozzle, a compression ring and a compression nut, the compression ring being mounted between the receiving fitting and the compression nut and surrounding the nozzle, whereby tightening the compression nut onto the receiving fitting compresses the compression ring onto the nozzle.

3. The assembly of claim 1, further comprising a step on an outer diameter of the nozzle, the step interacting with the receiving fitting to properly locate the nozzle to the receiving fitting.

4. The assembly of claim 1, wherein the nozzle has a notch

on an outer diameter which is aligned with the

compression ring whereby the compression ring engages the notch when the compression nut is tightened relative to the receiving fitting.

The assembly of claim 1, wherein the receiving fitting

threaded to the conduit .

6. The assembly of claim 1, wherein the nozzle has a throat section, and an inlet end and an outlet end and further comprising an inlet for feeding the powder to the nozzle wherein the inlet comprises a tube for carrying the powder, the tube extending along an axis of the nozzle from the inlet end and through the throat section.

7. The assembly of claim 1, wherein the nozzle has an inlet end and wherein the inlet end has rounded edges .

8. A cold spray nozzle assembly, comprising a nozzle, having an inlet end, an outlet end and a throat section between the inlet end and the outlet end;

a conduit for carrying a heated gas to the inlet end of

the nozzle;

an inlet for feeding powder to the nozzle, wherein the

inlet comprises a tube for carrying the powder, the tube extending along an axis of the nozzle from the inlet end and through the throat section.

9. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the compression tube

fitting comprises a receiving fitting attached to the conduit and receiving an end of the nozzle, a compression ring and a compression nut, the compression ring being mounted between the receiving fitting and the compression nut and surrounding the nozzle, whereby tightening the compression nut onto the receiving fitting compresses the compression ring onto the nozzle.

10. The apparatus of claim 8, further comprising a step on

an outer diameter of the nozzle, the step interacting with the receiving fitting to properly locate the nozzle to the receiving fitting.

11. The apparatus of claim 8, the nozzle has an inlet end and wherein the inlet end has rounded edges.

12. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the receiving fitting is threaded to the conduit.

13. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the nozzle has a an inlet end and an outlet end and a throat section, and further comprising an inlet for feeding the powder to the nozzle wherein the inlet comprises a tube for carrying the powder, the tube extending along an axis of the nozzle from the inlet end and through the throat section.

14. A cold spray gun according to claim 8, wherein the nozzle has an inlet end and wherein the inlet end has rounded edges.

15. A cold spray gun, comprising:

a conduit communicated with a source of gas and a source of powder;

a nozzle; and

a compression tube fitting connecting the nozzle to the conduit.

16. The assembly of claim 15, further comprising a

compression tube fitting connecting the nozzle to the conduit .

17. The assembly of claim 15, wherein the compression tube

fitting comprises a receiving fitting attached to the conduit and receiving an end of the nozzle, a compression ring and a compression nut, the compression ring being mounted between the receiving fitting and the compression nut and surrounding the nozzle, whereby tightening the compression nut onto the receiving fitting compresses the compression ring onto the nozzle.
