Jet Kote® II Nova-A | Jet Kote® II Nova-D | Jet Kote® III | Comparison of Jet Kote® Systems

The Jet Kote® II Nova systems were designed with operator convenience and efficiency in mind. They combine the high quality coating capabilities Jet Kote® torches are known for, with improved control console features for consistent, repeatable performance. 

The unique design of the Jet Kote® Nova II systems precisely controls the parameters of the HVOF process. Particle velocity, oxides, and temperature are tightly controlled, resulting in extremely dense coatings with typical porosities of <1%.  

Our Jet Kote® II Nova systems are capable of spraying a broad range of materials at up to 20 lb. /hour. Deposit efficiencies up to 70% are possible, resulting in deposit rates of up to 0.200 in/ft2/hr. 

The typical
Nova system consists of a control console, Model JK® 3000 torch, heat exchanger and powder feeder. The system is designed to provide optimum performance and the highest quality coatings available. The system is available in both an analog and digital form.

Jet Kote® II Nova-A

HVOF Equipment
Jet Kote®II Nova A


  • Analog display of manifold and torch pressures as well as gas flow rates (SCFH) using critical orifice flow meters for all gases
  • Gas flow is controlled using precision needle valves with gas pressure regulators in the console to increase accuracy and repeatability of gas flow rates
  • Gas saver mode (partial flow) for economical operation and improved cycle times while operator checks or changes parts being coated
  • Digital display of water temperature and flow rates
  • Digital timers for “flame time” and “powder time”
  • Optional multi-fuel capability is available
  • Optional remote pendant available
  • Remote ignition and optional remote powder valve can be used for complete separation of operator and the spray environment
  • Two auxiliary interfaces are provided for optional connection with safety switches on the spray booth
