Abstract
Operation of turbine engines in marine environments presents a great challenge for bearings and gears composed of Pyrowear 675. The harsh environment reduces bearing life and increases unscheduled maintenance. IBC Materials is developing an industrial-scale, novel thermal process utilizing a unique atmosphere and innovative heat treat process. Using this approach, IBC will significantly improve the corrosion resistance of the Pyrowear 675 while maintaining mechanical properties necessary for advanced performance.
