Wind Energy - Thermal Spray Coating
Wind energy has been recognized not only as a renewable energy, but also as one of the most sustainable forms of energy in all parts of the world. More and more nations have shifted focus from other forms of power generation to wind energy generation as one of the principal power resources. However, the industrial components employed in wind energy generation face the harshest environmental challenges, including dust, hail and atmospheric pollution. To resist corrosion and wear in components, A&A Coatings provides thermal spray coating solutions that can provide the best protection without interfering with key functionalities of the equipment used in the wind energy sector.
Coating and Spraying Services Offered for the Wind Energy Industry
Here are some of the service highlights of our coating applications for the wind energy industry:
- Corrosion Resistance of Exposed Components
Wind turbines have many exposed mechanical components which are typically manufactured out of strong lightweight materials. However, a focus on light weight means that these components are usually subject to severely corrosive environments. A&A Coatings, using our Electric Arc Thermal Spray Process, is able to apply a coating of Zinc, Aluminum or Zinc-Aluminum Alloy to prevent this corrosion and lead to longer service life of these components.
- Wear Resistance for Bearings and other components
Bearings and other components which are subject to rubbing and mechanical wear can benefit from A&A Coatings’ wear resistant materials applied via the Plasma and HVOF coating processes. These coatings not only will prevent wear from rubbing and galling, but can also in some cases add corrosion and quick release properties which will reduce friction in the component.
