MRO Aero Engine & IGT

Coating Removal with Waterjet for Aero Engines & IGT

Many aero-engine and industrial gas turbine components, such as turbine blades and combustor liners, are subject temperatures up to 2000°C. Heat this severe requires thermal barrier coatings to be applied in order to maintain optimal performance.

Additionally, many components are coated with abradables, wear-resistance, corrosion-protection or other coatings, sprayed or deposited using various processes: Plasma Spray, HVOF, EB-PVD, and more. These aim at extending lifetime between repair or replacement, improving engine performance, or both. During regular repair intervals, these important coatings must be removed before components are repaired, and then re-applied before the component is entered back into service.

Waterjet is the optimal solution to remove these coatings efficiently, safely, and in a cost-effective manner.
