Abstract: The coal burned natural gas in contact with gas turbine can contain impurities of sodium, sulfur, vanadium, silicon and possibly lead and phosphorous, induce accelerated hot corrosion during long term operation. Coatings are frequently applied on gas turbine components in order to restrict surface degradation and to obtain accurate lifetime expectancies. High velocity oxy-fuel thermal spraying has been used to deposit Stellite-6 alloy coatings on turbine alloys. Hot corrosion behavior of the coatings were investigated for 50 cycles of 1 h heating at 800 C followed by 20 min cooling in presence of Na 2SO4 + 50 % V2O5 measuring weight gain (or loss). X-ray diffraction and SEM/EDAX techniques were used to characterize the oxide scale formed. The superior performance of Stellite-6 coating can be attributed to continuous and protective thin oxide scale of CoO, Cr2O3 and SiO2 formed on the surface. The coating region beneath this thin oxide scale was partially oxidized. Uncoated SuperCo-605 and MDN-121 showed less weight gain than Stellite-6 coated samples, but they showed spalling or sputtering during cyclic oxidation. Stellite-6 coating was dense and pore free even after 50 cycles, indicating that it can resist the hot corrosion cycle. 2013 Indian Institute of Metals.
