The "Water Droplet Erosion Tester" from Ducom simulates the damage of components in oil and gas (flow control equipment), power generation (steel pipes, wind turbines, and compressor blades), and aerospace (leading edge of aircraft) industries due to the presence of water drops.
"Water Droplet Erosion Tester was used to successfully deploy the hybrid PU coatings that protects the leading edge of the wind turbine blades"
When compared to solid particles, water droplets can be highly damaging because of high impact pressure that leads to lateral jetting and shear waves. The impact of continual water droplets on components can influence their performance efficiency, caused by the development of craters, high roughness, and through hole under severe conditions.
Ducom Water Droplet Erosion Tester with precision control of droplet velocity and droplet size. The operating parameters are in compliance with ASTM G76.
The "Water Droplet Erosion Tester" from Ducom has the ability to reproduce and control an extensive range of operational parameters like impact frequency of 5–100 per second, droplet impact angle of 15° to 90°, and droplet velocity of 25–250 m/second. Such parameters depict the real operating conditions in power plant, wind turbine and aerospace industries.
