Combustor

Combustor

In the combustor, highly compressed air coming from the compressor is mixed with fuel and then ignited. Exposed to extremely high pressures and temperatures, this component is particularly prone to serious damage in operation and hence requires special protection, for example by thermal barrier coatings and cooling air holes. MTU Maintenance is tackling the challenge of restoring combustors to a serviceable condition using OEM repairs as well as repair procedures developed in-house.
