Upgrades & Life Extension
Coatings are applied for preservation, protection, and sealing purposes.
Some plant processes are sensitive to fouling of rotating and stationary compressor components. Other processes have aggressive gasses that can attack the commonly used materials. Abradable coatings help to minimize the effect of normal wear and help sustain the efficiency of the compressor.
Protective coatings are used for short and long term storage of compressor rotors and aero assemblies.
Various quality coatings are available.
