Components Oerlikon Balzers surface solutions improves the efficiency of power generation components.
Steam turbine and industrial gas turbine blades are subjected to corrosion, erosion, abrasion and cavitation wear in the compressor and hot corrosion and oxidation in the hot section. BALINIT and BALORA coatings provide alternatives to traditional slurry coatings, thermal spraying and plating techniques and enable blades to withstand these demanding conditions while increasing efficiency.
Steam turbines component have to resist high temperature, water steam corrosion, erosion or fretting wear.
