Rostec to prolong life of engine components for MS-21 six-fold

Posted 10 October 2018 · Add Comment

United Engine Corporation (UEC) and the All-Russian Institute of Light Alloys (VILS), both forming part of Rostec, will prolong the life of the PD-14 engine by using a new heat-resistant granulated alloy.

The new alloy has been used for making high pressure compressor discs and a turbine for the PD-14 engine created for the first Russian short and medium-haul MS-21 aircraft. According to current estimates, its implementation, along with other innovative technical solutions, will increase the life of these components of domestic engines for civil aviation from 5 to 30 thousand flight cycles.

“PD-14 is the result of the broad cooperation work of our enterprises. The innovative solutions applied in it, including new alloys, allowed to create a truly modern, powerful and highly resourced aviation engine. The first flight of the prototype MS-21 with PD-14 is scheduled for the second quarter of 2019. Deliveries of PD-14 for MS-21 will begin in 2021", said Anatoliy Serdyukov, industrial director of Rostec's Aviation Cluster.
