A work proposes spraying as a perspective and high-performance method for increasing the reliability of work of TPP power equipment. The main type of wear of tubing elements of TPP power equipment is ash erosion and corrosion. Therefore, in order to increase their reliability, operation life and working capacity it was proposed to use electric-arc spraying using PP 70Kh10RZYu5 material as a method of gas-thermal modification of heating surfaces. The aim of work is investigation of efficiency of spraying application for increasing the reliability of operation of TPP power equipment. Spraying of the heating surfaces was carried out on two thermal power plants of PJSC «Centrenergo» in 2013. A feasibility study showed that implementation of spraying technology allows 1.5 -2.0 times decrease of expenses in comparison with  loss incurred by TPP in the case of emergency shutdowns and rise approximately 1.4 time service life. 15 Ref., 7 Tabl., 12 Fig.
