Investigation of Corrosion Fatigue Phenomena in Transient Zone and Preventive Coating and Blade Design Against Fouling and Corrosive Environment for Mechanical Drive Turbines
MetadataShow full item record
For mechanical drive steam turbines, the investigation results of corrosion fatigue phenomena in the transient zone are introduced, including basic phenomena on expansion line and actual design and damage experience. These results were analyzed for the standpoint of stress intensity during the start of cracking. In order to resolve such problems, preventive coating and blade design methods against fouling and corrosive environments were developed. Detailed evaluation test results are given for coating performance using a unique test procedure simulating fouling phenomena and washing conditions. Finally, the results of the successful modification of internals and online washing results onsite are introduced.
