Gas turbines are used to power aircraft, trains, ships, electrical generators, pumps, gas compressors, and tanks. Innovative Surface Solutions has extensive experience working with multiple applications of the gas turbine.
Abrasive blasting uses a variety of materials to strip imperfections, paint, rust, and other contaminants from a surface. It is a crucial step in surface coating preparation as it cleans a substrate and creates a surface that will keep a protective coating.
Gas turbine hot-gas-path components, which include combustion liners, transition pieces, turbine nozzles and turbine buckets, are exposed to hot gases discharged from combustion systems and suffer from severe materials degradation and damage even in the early stage of operation.
High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) coating is a thermal spray coating process, which is used to improve or restore a component's surface (properties or geometry). This surface engineering technique better enables life extension of equipment by increasing erosion and wear resistance, and corrosion protection.
Intergranular corrosion (IGC), also known as intergranular attack (IGA), is a form of corrosion where the boundaries of crystallites of the material are more susceptible to corrosion than their insides.
Thermal barrier coatings are commonly used to protect nickel-based superalloys from both melting and thermal cycling in aviation turbines. Combined with cool air flow, TBCs increase the allowable gas temperature above that of the superalloy melting point.
The water jet process uses high-pressure water to remove Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) from the flow-path surface to expose the bond coat for chemical stripping.
