An Alternative Low-Cost Process for Deposition of McRally Bond Coats for Advanced Syngas/Hydrogen Turbine Applications

Performer: Tennessee Technological University

Project No: FE0007332

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will utilize a novel coating process to synthesize a nickel/cobalt- chromium-aluminum-yttrium (MCrAlY) bond coat. Turbine materials research seeks to improve coating materials that will allow for higher temperature operation and increased durability leading to increased turbine efficiency and reduced maintenance. Specifically, this project will use electro-codeposition to deposit optimally designed MCrAlY bond coats using a sulfur free electrolyte and analyze the process and resulting bond coats for effects on composition and microstructure.
