Specialty Steel for Power Generation

Come see us at Power-Gen 2016, Booth# 5611

Meeting and maintaining the increasing demands for power while minimizing the ecological impact is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The world’s leading producers of energy realize that turbines for generators driven by gas, steam or water power play a major role in living up to this responsibility.

Materials used in the generation of power are subjected to extreme thermal and mechanical stresses. Few applications put higher demands on specialty steels. As a result, Bohler is dedicated to the production and supply of stainless and nickel-based alloys.

Bohler steels directly impact the performance and efficiency of the world’s power producing turbines. As one of the largest producers of raw material for energy turbines in the world, Bohler serves the world’s largest turbine manufacturers.

On the product section of this website, we have listed the most commonly used alloys for power generation.  But please see our application  brochure for additional alloys we can provide, and contact our support staff for more information.

Some of Our Specialty Steel Grades

  • T655SC – 403/410 Stainless Creep resistant hardened and tempered steel with a usual upper temperature limit of 1022 degrees F (550 degrees C). It is especially recommended
    for turbine blades and damping plates and sheets.
    Standard Spec: 403/410 Stainless
     
  • T656 – 403CB Creep resistant hardened and tempered steel whose usual upper temperature limit for continuous operating is 1022 degrees F (550 degrees C). Especially
    recommended for turbine blades.
    Standard Spec: 403CB
     
  • T560SB – 403CB+ Creep resistant steel which is hardened and tempered with a usual upper temperature limit of 1076 degrees F (580 degrees C). It is used where high temperature strength is needed in thermal engines and power plants, such as turbine blades.
    Standard Spec: 403CB+
