Abstract of the online-seminar

Castings made of stainless steels have been successfully used as turbine components in the hydropower industry. High quality castings necessitates a strong knowledge of metallurgy and foundry practices.

The webinar shall be a deep dive into the world of cast stainless materials used for the various critical components such as runner blades, buckets, guide vanes used in impulse turbines like Pelton and reaction turbines like Francis and Kaplan.

This webinar aims to provide the audience with materials selection guidelines when it comes to selection of high alloy castings for hydropower applications.
