In the work the spraying is suggested as the promising and high-efficient method for improvement of operation reliability of TPP power equipment. As the main type of wear of pipe elements of TPP power equipment is the ash wear and corrosion, then to increase their reliability, service life and working capacity it is suggested to apply the electric arc spraying using material PP 70Kh10R3Yu5 as a method of thermal modification of heating surfaces. The aim of the work is the investigation of efficiency of spraying application for improving the operation reliability of TPP power equipment. Spraying of heating surfaces was carried out in two thermal power plants of PJSC «Centrenergo» in 2013. A feasibility study showed that the implementation of spraying technology allows 1.5–2.0 times decreasing the expenses as compared with losses, incurred by TPP in case of emergency shutdowns, and increasing the service life of the equipment approximately by 1.4 times. 15 Ref., 7 Tables, 12 Figures.
