In the contact section of industrial gas turbine parts, wear can be observed after normal operations. Especially, in the contact area of combustors and their fittings, such as a transition piece and a seal plate, the severe wear may occur owing to combustion vibration under high temperature. If such severe wear occurs, some inspections or repair of the combustor parts may be needed. The short cycle of inspection and repair will decrease the performance of the gas turbine. Though combustors and their fittings are subjected to high temperature condition without any lubricant, any relevant prevention has not been developed yet. In this paper, wear resistance of ceramic hard coating materials, i.e. titanium nitride (TiN), titanium aluminum nitride (TiaAIN), chromium nitride (CrN), titanium carbide (TiC), silicon carbide (SiC), aluminum oxide (Al2O3) against various metals was tested under the condition similar to that in a gas turbines. These coatings were deposited by physical vapor deposition (PVD) or chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes. It was concluded that, the combination of Al2O3 coating and stellite #6B had excellent high temperature wear resistance.
