Cold Spray Process Development in -situ Repair of Hydroturbines

The first goal of this project is to produce an optimized cold spray process for cavitation resistance that represents an additional 50% improvement over cold spray processes tested in PNNL’s current cavitation repair program. The second goal is to include the optimized cold spray process, developed as part of this TCF project, in field testing that is being developed as part of a Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Technology Innovation (TI) project.
