In service degradation of MCrAlY coated camberline cooled blades resulted after 16,000 hours of operation. The peripheral cooling design was developed to reduce the operating metal temperature, thereby extending the coating life and extending the refurbishment cycle. To evaluate the effectiveness of this design, camberline and peripheral cooled blades were coated with MCrAlY type coating for evaluation. The blades were installed in a 501D5 combustion turbine for rainbow testing in 1991. In this paper, the metallurgical evaluation results of the coated peripheral style blades exposed to 24,000 hours of operation is presented.
