Loctite® PC 7000™ A Breakthrough in Power Plant Maintenance

    March 25, 2015

Power plant critical components such as coal burner nozzle tips take a lot of abuse. Not only are they exposed to extreme heat, but they also experience wear due to the flow of fine coal dust. Such challenging conditions make burner tips of coal-fired power plants highly vulnerable to failure – and when they fail, they lead to huge efficiency losses and even plant outages.

At Henkel, we’re always looking for better ways to tackle critical maintenance issues with our LOCTITE® brand products. That quest led to the development of a new solution for power generation maintenance – LOCTITE PC 7000™ High Temperature Abrasion Resistant Coating.

The product is a water-based, environmentally responsible, three-component rapid setting silica-based composite coating system that offers multiple advantages:

  • Protects industrial processing equipment like coal tip burners in boilers against wear due to abrasion at harsh temperatures of up to 2012ºF.

  • Acts as a protective barrier against surface abrasion and softening of the tip surface in the most punishing conditions, such as those where burner tips are exposed to the radiated heat of boiler house fire.

  • Components retain their original shape much longer, resulting in sustained boiler efficiency and reduced unplanned downtime.

What happens without that extra layer of protection? The tips will need to be replaced more frequently, and that’s not an easy thing to do. Plants must also factor in replacement part costs and the lost production costs that occur during downtime.

LOCTITE PC 7000 is an award-winning composite coating system that would be an efficient and cost-effective addition to your MRO strategy. Want to learn more about LOCTITE PC 7000? Ask us here!
