The project aims to evaluate and design equipment required for repairing holes in primarily Power generation and Petro-Chemical components, using friction hydro pillar process (FHPP), which with the WeldCore® process currently relies on a ligament to build the repair weld. Industries in the current target market have expressed concern in the event of an unplanned through hole in their components during a typical WeldCore® application; this development will directly address this concern.
