Hydro Erosion

Solving Erosion Problems on an International Stage

Before (guide vane damage)

After (runner blade partially
coated with Softurb)

Formulated Resins Ltd developed Softurb 80 for an international hydro power company to reduce erosion on water turbines. This coating system enables the stainless steel and carbon steel to resist abrasion and cavitation from waterborne particles ranging in size from 0.1mm to 0.6mm travelling at 70m per second. The pictures above show the successful treatment of erosion in India and China.
