Blade (Gas Turbine)


An individual component on a gas turbine power recovery wheel responsible for extracting energy from the high-temperature, high-pressure gas produced in the combustion section, sometimes referred to as a bucket. Various coatings are used to offset the degradation of blades caused by the extremely high temperatures in which they operate, thus prolonging the useful life of the turbine.

Also known as Bucket.
