The following applies to almost all industries and areas of application: components that are provided with thermally sprayed coatings make a positive contribution to sustainability. Thermally sprayed surfaces also give your machine the finishing touches in terms of positive energy balance. Environmental protection and energy production are closely linked. In any case, thermal spraying is always the appropriate method of choice for your components.
The demands on production processes to reduce CO2 or even produce CO2-neutrally are becoming ever higher. Machines must work efficiently and, if possible, without energy loss or with as little energy expenditure as possible. A thermally sprayed surface can make a good contribution to conserving resources and to the energy efficiency of your complete installation. Ceramic-coated sealing seats offer a friction-optimised surface that does not waste energy during start-up, increases durability and extends the service life of your machines.
Sustainability along the entire production chain can be guaranteed by thermally refined surfaces. As your engineering partner, we support you in the development and design of your components by integrating the innovative and suitable surface treatment at an early stage.
Sustainability does not stop after the design of your machine components, but runs through (preventive) maintenance and repair. If your component is worn, it can be reconditioned by a ceramic, carbide or metal alloy. Material consumption is reduced and resources are conserved. The life cycle and thus the energy and CO2 balance for your plant or machine has been significantly improved by the use of a thermal spray coating.
If you are a manufacturer of components for environmental technology or energy production, then the path to thermal spraying guides you too. Turbine blades in hydropower plants are protected from cavitation by a tungsten carbide coating and can be used for longer.
