Abstract
Main goal of this project is achievement of increased corrosion resistance of steel Pyrowear 675 with application of SANOVA"s new patented LINCARBOHEAT-675 technology. Custom active medium and preliminary treatment protocol of LINCARBOHEAT-675 technology with resistive heating were developed during successful Phase I implementation using SANOVA"s retrofitted LINTERLAB-R1 laboratory equipment. Resulting preliminary technology yielded significant efficiencies, as compared to traditional furnace processes. High accuracy in concentration and supply into the working chamber of custom active medium, together with precise control of treatment temperatures and durations of all processing steps, enabled SANOVA considerably shorten production time and generate significant savings in space, energy consumption and other operating costs. But most importantly, highly effective microstructure on steel Pyrowear 675 was achieved for superior corrosion resistance. Even better results are anticipated in Phase I Option with utilization of SANOVA"s recently deployed laboratory equipment LINTERLAB-i2 equipped with such capabilities as high-efficiency induction heating and scanning/rotation of specimen - crucial for inexpensive and rapid creation of effective treatment protocol for treatment of test specimens and small components in Phase II. Development, testing, and subsequent demonstration of initial treatment process on real OEM gas turbine bearing component will be performed on SANOVA"s retrofitted production prototype equipment LINCARB-1 during Phase II.
