Chromium Carbide Stationary Nozzles

Stationary coal nozzles, lined with chromium carbide, are revolutionizing the power generation industry by significantly increasing the lifespan when compared to cast nozzles. In addition, repairing the chromium carbide nozzles with weld overlay allows for on-site spot repair, when ceramic lined stationary nozzles require complete re-lining if one ceramic block fails.
