HP Viewpoint: Consider new developments in antifouling coatings for rotating equipment
Innovative materials and applications protect critical centrifugal compressors and steam turbines from erosion and corrosion
Over the past fifteen years, a great deal of progress has been made with respect to materials science and related processes applied to various components of centrifugal compressors and industrial steam turbines. Due to the very competitive market, material selection has moved beyond simply finding the material with the most ideal properties. Material cost and delivery has become one of the most important factors in the overall cost of the component.
Most original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are continuously reviewing new ways, whether by material or process changes, to reduce cost or delivery to remain competitive. Also, as energy costs increase, the importance of process and equipment ef
