Due to the extreme conditions experienced in gas turbine engines, especially aero-derivative type engines, internal components need to be protected against adverse effects in order to maintain component integrity and engine performance between overhauls. Among these adverse conditions are wear in the form of friction and fretting, erosion and various forms of corrosion. This paper focuses on fretting wear. To reduce coating costs, shorten the dwell time, and provide additional options for the repair of industrial gas turbine components, it presents a comprehensive study initiated by Rolls-Royce to determine the feasibility of the Sulzer Metco HVOF process as an alternative to the evaluate the D-Gun process. Based on the results of this study, it was concluded that tungsten carbide and chromium carbide sprayed with the Diamond Jet Hybrid can be used successfully as coating alternatives to the D-Gun. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
