Steam and gas turbines

Industrial gas and steam turbines (IGT and IST) are the workhorses of power generation plants. Turbine performance depends on energy conversion efficiency and the ability to continuously operate with minimal planned or unplanned downtime. IHI Ionbond offers multiple solutions aimed at improving the performance and reliability of turbine operation. In addition to selected coatings from the Tribobond portfolio, Ionbond offers laser treatment for turbine blades, as well as Bernex aluminizing for the hot section of IGTs.

Coating benefits:

  • Improved resistance to cavitation and erosion of leading edges
  • Improved oxidation resistance due to advanced aluminizing
  • Fretting protection of blade roots
