Hot Gas Path Inspection

Steam turbine testing

What are hot gas path inspections for? They examine components exposed to extreme temperatures from the hot gases spewed from the combustion process. Keep in mind that this inspection isn’t a quick one. It can last up to 368 hours, but it is necessary to find the wear and tear of equipment. You can use the turbine properly, but that doesn’t stop issues from popping up.

Our experienced technicians will check for corrosion, fouling, erosion, and leakage in the inlet and compressor cases. They’ll inspect bearings and seals for clearance and wear. Technicians will look at the rotor and stator compression blades to check for cracking, bowing, fretting, rubs, and warping. As you can see, this is an in-depth inspection of the large equipment.
