Municipal solid waste (MSW), often called garbage, is used to produce energy at waste-to-energy plants and at landfills in the United States. MSW contains Biomass, or biogenic (plant or animal products), materials such as paper, cardboard, food waste, grass clippings, leaves, wood, and leather products, Nonbiomass combustible materials such as plastics and other synthetic materials made from petroleum and noncombustible materials such as glass and metals. MSW is usually burned at waste-to-energy plants that use the heat from the fire to make steam for generating electricity or to heat buildings. This fuel mixture can be very corrosive to WtE boilers.
Improves corrosion and erosion resistance in biomass and WtE plants using engineered coating technology or weld overlay to increase uptime of the plant.
Our amorphous iron-based and nickel thermal sprays provide hard, and dense, protection against aggressive molten ash and fatigue driven damage mechanisms that cause failures quickly on non-protected tubing.
