ALUMINUM WIRE SPRAY METALLIZING SHIPBOARD COMPONENTS FOR CORROSION RESISTANCE

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard was tasked by COMNAVSEASYCOM to develop a procedure, qualify personnel, and aluminum spray metallize as many valves and selected other parts as practical in the main propulsion system of the USS William H. Standley CG-32. A total of 571 valves, 15 safety valve caps, eight boiler access doors, and eight small pipe assemblies were sprayed during the course of this research and development project. The project was undertaken to provide a documented, representative test of sprayed aluminum as a corrosion control method. The production spraying of the valves presented some problems that were overcome and recommendations are included.
