Still considering performing a turbine outage this Fall or next Spring?

Regardless of whether or not your steam turbine is cycling or base load, it may be difficult to pinpoint when the next maintenance inspection should be performed.  We have a solution to help you determine when to schedule your next steam turbine inspection – providing peace of mind that you are scheduling your maintenance outages when they are needed, not spending money too soon, and not waiting until its too late.

A Running Condition Assessment may provide you (or your insurance company) with the peace of mind that the unit is not nearing a failure point, and can continue to operate.  Alternatively, the Running Condition Assessment may tell you that an immediate outage should be scheduled to avoid a component failure.  The Running Condition Assessment can provide you with the information needed to properly schedule your next steam turbine outage.

  • A Running Condition Assessment allows us to assess the health of your turbine generator while the unit is in operation – no need to bring the unit offline.
  • This assessment typically includes one specialized technician and equipment at your facility for 3 – 5 days, minimizing the people and time on-site.
  • After completion of the Running Condition Assessment you will receive a detailed report on the current condition of your turbine, providing you with vital information for future decision-making. 
  • The cost of a Running Condition Assessment is negligible compared to the cost of a turbine outage.

Turbine Valve Seat Replacement

We recently completed a Valve Seat Replacement on a GE Steam Turbine.  In some cases the existing seat can be pulled, in the case shown below it was required to machine out the previous seat.  We perform many turbine valve seat replacements in the field, and can manufacture the components required at our Gainesville, Georgia Steam Turbine Valve facility.  This type of job requires specialty equipment, as well as highly skilled technicians.  It is a great example of the high quality craftsmanship that our customers have come to expect from all of our valve machining and component manufacturing services.

If you have any future valve seat replacement projects that you would like us to quote, please CLICK HERE to contact us.

June Safety Update

We’ve completed the month of June with zero OSHA-recordable injuries and have a TRIR of 0.00 for the year. We continue to be proactive in identifying potential hazards and maintaining our safety-first mindset. Great job by our HSE Director, Shannon Scruggs, our Repair Facility Management and Technicians, and each one of our Field Service Project Management teams for engraining our safety culture throughout the organization. Nice job everybody!

Collector Ring Machining & Re-Grooving

We recently completed a Collector Ring Machining & Re-Grooving project for a U.S.-Based Utility Company – the before and after photos are below.  Outage Season is over, but our Field Machining Division is continuing to respond to emergent requests.  If you have any Collector Ring Machining of Re-Grooving needs please contact us today!   For our latest Collector Ring Machining brochure, CLICK HERE.

Need Steam Turbine Valve Components?

Contact us today to learn how we can provide you with high quality/low cost valve components for your Steam Turbine.   We manufacture a variety of valve components for various Steam Turbine OEM types for the fossil and nuclear industries.

Whether it be to replenish your stock or for an upcoming turbine outage need, we have a solution for you. 

We can also reverse engineer and manufacture components through the simple process outlined below.

  • Sample Received– Whether it’s a stock item or an item made to order for a special application, the process begins with a new or used sample.
  • Reverse Engineering – After receiving your sample, we confirm all required properties (dimensions, hardness, material composition) using our state of the art equipment.
  • Design – From the reverse engineering data, a detailed CAD manufacturing drawing is created in accordance with international design standards.
  • Price Estimate – A price estimate is provided for the finished part. Typically, savings are in the range of 15-30% under standard retail pricing. More savings can be realized as production quantities increase.
  • Manufacture – Upon agreement on the design and price, we manufacture the part, updating you on the production status along the way. After passing a stringent quality inspection, parts will ship immediately.

We look forward to developing a custom plan to help you improve quality and reduce the cost of your critical steam turbine valve components.

Alstom GT11 B Inspections

We recently completed multiple B Inspections on Alstom GT11 Combustion Turbines for a Utility in the Southern United States.  The project was completed safely, on-schedule, and on-budget.  Our success is attributed to the fact that we have former Alstom-employed Technical Field Advisors on staff who oversee these projects for our customers located around the World.

Experience Matters – We have completed over 120 outages on Alstom GT8/GT11 equipment, providing you with an experienced service provider for your Alstom Gas Turbines.

Please contact us today to discuss how we can help you with your next A, B, or C inspection on your GT8 or GT11 equipment.
