Nanostructured Coating Increases Lifetime of Boiler Components in Elevated Temperature Environments

The NanoSteel® Company, a leader in nanostructured steel alloy surface technologies for industrial applications, announces the commercial availability of a new Super Hard Steel® alloy, SHS 8000, for coating solutions in the power generation industry that improves reliability and availability, and increases the lifetime of pressure parts over leading industry standard coatings.

SHS 8000 is a cored wire solution for twin wire arc thermal spraying that excels in the elevated temperature environments of pulverized coal and fluidized bed boilers. SHS 8000 features an ultra-refined crystalline microstructure, up to a thousand times finer than existing solutions, resulting in exceptional corrosion, erosion and wear resistance, a unique high hardness/toughness combination and extremely high bond strength without the necessity of a bond coat.

“SHS 8000 offers superior performance to current industry standard coatings,” says Dave Paratore, president and CEO. “SHS 8000 will reduce maintenance costs, minimize unplanned outages from tube failure and feature excellent field repairability.”
