  • Case Study 5.2: Gas and steam turbine combustion residues
    Coating/Contaminant: Gas and steam turbine combustion residues; Substrate: High-finished, hardened stainless steel.
  • Fatigue Damage of Steam Turbine Blade Caused by Frequency Shift Due to Solid Buildup-A Case Study (.pdf)
    The case history is presented of a large steam turbine that experienced blade damage after about eight years of service. The probable cause and subsequent solution to the problem are addressed. A discussion of the metallurgical analysis of the damage, Campbell diagram, SAFE diagram and modal test
  • Bolt Expansion Job on a Steam Turbine
    The time pressure facing service engineers is made even worse by the technology traditionally used to expand and remove the large bolts that secure turbine covers. So when Alstom Power was performing planned maintenance on a turbine, they asked us if induction heating was a viable alternative.
  • Steam Turbine Water Washing (.pdf)
    Capability for full speed turbine water washing has become an increasing requirement, especially on mechanical drive units. Although load carrying capability will be somewhat reduced, essentially the overall plant requirements are maintained.
  • Optimization of a Leading Edge Groove Tilting Pad Journal Bearing for Application in a Small, High Speed Multi-Stage Steam Turbine (.pdf)
    Optimization of a leading edge groove tilting pad journal bearing for application in a small, high speed, multi-stage steam turbine is described. Rotordynamics constraints to meet a design objective maximum operating speed of 18,000 rpm resulted in a rotor with a 5 1. 0 in. bearing span and 5. 0
  • MR Steam Turbine Material Accelerator
    After completing installation of a fresh 2250 hp motor on the Fructose MR, initial quality check vibration readings showed a significant .17g spike at 2X line frequency (120hz) in the gse spectrum. This is indicative of rotor-stator rotation eccentricity. There was also a 1X spike in the ips
  • Frequency Evaluation of a Steam Turbine Bladed Disk (.pdf)
    Unplanned and untimely shutdowns of critical turbomachinery is costly-for both the user and the original equipment manufacturer. Therefore, it is very important that the turbomachinery be designed and operated to assure trouble-free operation. This is not always easily accomplished. Because
  • Steam and power
    , supplied the biggest single-cylinder turbine-generator ever to be installed in a pulp and paper mill. With the plant operating at 100 % steam generating capacity some of the electricity produced is supplied to the grid. The steam turbine, a single-cylinder backpressure machine with an electrical output
