Thermal barriers for a new generation of aircraft and rocket engines
Aircraft engine efficiency boost
The efficiency of aircraft jet engines directly relates to the temperature in combustion chamber. These temperature limitations are linked to the quality of Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) on the surface of metal alloy that the engine combustion chamber is made of. TBC thin mineral YSZ layer deposited by plasma spraying protects the engine from melting.
NanoEma's YSZ composite nano-materials for plasma spraying developed by AMJTJ allows for higher operating temperatures in aircraft engines, achieving greater efficiency.
Less fuel, higher power,
Lab data show up to 30% increase in scattering of thermal radiation due to the structure of the NanoEma's TBC mineral layer.
If at the end of the life cycle the TBC showed still 5% better scattering than today's standard, this can be translated as 50°C temperature increase in the combustion chamber which is roughly proportional to 5% increase in power/efficiency of such aircraft engine.
Cleaner environment, less pollution, less CO2
The new NanoEma's composite materials deliver new levels of quality to thermal barriers, improving their resistance against heat, abrasion, erosion and corrosion.
Five percent reduction of fuel consumption also means five percent less CO2 and less expensive transportation.
