TURBINE BLADES

April 3, 20172 months ago

OUR NEW LEAFLET “MAGTEC – THE FASTEST AND MOST ACCURATE WAY OF CHECKING BLADES FOR CRACKS” IS NOW ONLINE!

Checking turbine and compressor blades for cracks can be time-consuming and, quite literally, a heavy task which in most cases does not even guarantee accurate results. Laborelec’s MAGTEC guarantees the best results in half the time. Want to know more? Get your copy of our leaflet or contact us for an in-depth consultation.

Condition monitoring of turbine blades

Blade tip timing system leads to improved operational flexibilityBlade tip timing

The increased demand for operational flexibility causes low pressure turbines to be more often run under sub-optimal conditions. This leaves them more susceptible to blade vibrations, which can ultimately damage the blade. Through blade tip timing, operators can better estimate the risk of vibrations and adjust plant operation accordingly. Laborelec managed to bring this theoretical concept into practice by installing a tip timing system in the steam turbine of the French DK6 Power Plant in Dunkerque .
