In this paper, the powders transportation in laser cladding repairing during the coaxial powder-feeding was evaluated. The theoretical evaluation is based on a two-fluid approach in which both the gas and particulate phase is treated each phase separately, and the only link between the phases is through the drag force in the momentum equations. The particles velocities are calculated with changes of the gas flow and mass flow rate. This is important for the coaxial nozzle and the carrier-gas powder transportation equipment characteristics determined. An experimentally of the influence of carrying gas on the powder stream was set up. The gas-particles flowing from the nozzle was illuminated by a 2D sheet of light. A typical image from the CCD camera is captured. The axial velocity and cross section were described. According to the results, it was found that: (1) Different mass flow rate Mp =0.5g/s, 0.67g/s, 0.83g/s, 1g/s, the powder stream luminance intensity and distribution will change. (2) The distribution of powder concentration at longitudinal axis from the nozzle exit is shown. The faster particulates stream has the less density per unit volume for a given mass flow rate. (3) The gas velocity for transportation is the most important parameter.
