A compressor coating reduces corrosion in the turbine system of a gas turbine engine. The coating is not wet by droplets or aerosols of sea water. The coating reduces the build up of salt deposits on compressor components and their subsequent passage into the turbine section, which prevents corrosion.
In compressor diffuser vanes, the vanes are designed in such a way that their leading edges will be inline with the direction of the gas flow from the impeller. From this point, vane curvature will force the gas to flow and be slowed down in a way that favors a particular engine speed or torque requirement. Vanes are used to alter the pressure ratio and flow characteristics of the compressor. Compressors with vane type diffuser normally have high peak efficiency. They frequently have a narrower range than compressors with vane less diffuser.
Compressor Fluids are recommended for cooling and lubricating continuously operating rotary screw & vane compressors, which operate at high discharge temperatures. Compressor fluids are not used to compress wet or sour hydrocarbon gases. These compressor fluids are compatible with all compressor oils except polyclycols and all standard seal & hose materials.
