Centrifugal Compressors – Coatings

Coatings are not widely used to improve corrosion or erosion resistance of compressor internals. Problems include:
• surface preparation prior to coating
• maintenance of critical tolerances
• balancing coated components
• protection of coating during handling
• modification of established manufacturing procedures

Selection of compatible materials or material properties is generally the most practical approach.
