Strategic Metals for the Global Economy

When thinking of turbines, one usually thinks of aircrafts first. On aircrafts, efficient jet engines ensure ever lower kerosene consumption. Gas turbines also play a role in electricity generation, for example in big industrial plants or in gas-fired power plants. In contrast, steam turbines are installed in conventional power plant types such as coal, nuclear power or biomass.
As alloy components strategic metals help to make housings and turbine blades more stable and heat-resistant. Demand for efficient aircraft and power plants is increasing worldwide. Those who invest in tangible assets in good time can benefit from the global economy’s increasing demand for strategic metals.

Conventional power plants all work the same way: heat is generated to evaporate water. The steam flows with high pressure through turbines that rotate and reduce the pressure. The rotational movement is converted into electricity by means of a generator.

The turbine blades are exposed to enormous forces. If they are made of alloys containing a portion of hafnium or rhenium, they can withstand the extreme conditions much better. Hafnium and rhenium are therefore indispensable in modern turbines.

Gas turbines are the first choice when it comes to flexible medium-sized energy supplies. In addition to gas-fired power plants, they can also be used in industrial plants or ships. As part of alloys, strategic metals make turbine blades and housings provide particularly stable and durable.

Compared to conventional power plants, gas turbines are more flexible, compared to diesel engines, for example, more efficient and cleaner. So-called gas-and-steam combined-cycle power plants (CCD power plant) combine gas and steam turbines. They achieve remarkable efficiencies of over 63 percent.

In the combustion chambers of jet engines, temperatures are up to 2,200 degrees Celsius (4.000 degrees Fahrenheit). So-called superalloys (mostly nickel-based) are necessary to permanently withstand these temperatures. Hafnium, rhenium or praseodymium further heighten the strength and durability of blades and housings.

Passenger numbers are increasing worldwide, and this is likely to continue to be the case in the coming years. The continuous development of jet engines ensures ever greater efficiency in both consumption and noise emissions.
