  • A Review of Cavitation-Erosion Resistant Weld Surfacing Alloys for Hydroturbines

    AbstractAn improved weld surfacing alloy has been developed and tested to resist cavitation-erosion in hydroturbines. Typical wear characteristics experienced in laboratory testing has been correlated to actual service conditions. A metallurgical evaluation shows that a high strain, work hardening austenitic stainless steel produces superior resistance to cavitational erosion. Several industrial ...
