Gas Turbine Thermal Barrier Coating


In a typical industrial gas turbine used to provide electric power as peaking units, and sometimes even as baseload units, the actual burning of the fuel takes place in a combustion liner or combustion basket. These components are constantly exposed to a severe service environment and must stand up to:

  • Repeated thermal cycling
  • Extremely high temperatures
  • Corrosion from elements in the fuel
  • Erosion from material introduced by either the fuel or air used in combustion
