Corrosion protection for the gas industry
Victor R. Olekseychuk, head of corrosion protection department of GAZPROM and Igor A. Roshchin, director general of NeftegazTekhEkspertiza (expert organization) visited VIAM on March 20, 2014.
During the visit, the guests examined experimental, research and production base of VIAM. In particular, they examined the following complexes: heat treatment, microbiological resistance tests, casting of single-crystal GTE and GTU blades, ceramic composite materials and anti-oxidation coatings, polymer composite materials, high-temperature fatigue tests. In addition, representatives of the companies visited the laboratory for chemical express analysis of heat resistant alloys, bays for mass production of cast charge bars, abrasive polishing, isothermal forging of heat resistant alloys, ion-plasma coatings and high-precision prepregs.
Experts of VIAM showed the guests the work of unique equipment and told about the newest developments of the Institute. In particular, the special attention was given to corrosion protection systems for metal and PCM structures and their joining and to climatic and mycological tests.
