Thermal Spray Coatings for Turning Vanes Prevent Erosion

NanoSteel, an advanced materials company having a product line of eco-friendly, innovative and proprietary steel alloys based on nanotechnology significantly enhance the steel value in maximum of today’s industrial applications.

Product success can be mainly credited to the development of Super Hard Steel (SHS) alloys featuring nanoscale microstructures. SHS alloys find applications as metallic coatings within mining, power generation, concrete, cement, and oil & gas industries.

NanoSteel SHS alloys are normally applied using thermal spray and weld overlay processes dramatically increasing the service life of industrial components subject to corrosion and wear environments, ensuring that costly alternatives and environmentally dangerous chrome plating are not needed.

Material Loss from Severe Erosion

Flue gas at fossil fuel power plants are removed using dry scrubber or spray drying absorption systems.

NanoSteel Thermal Spray Coating for Turning Vanes

In order to minimize material loss on turning vanes inside dry scrubber unit at a coal fired power plant in Arizona, a NanoSteel thermal spray coating solution is applied for resisting severe erosion.
