Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

(OP)
It is observed after inspection of the LP steam turbine last stage which was running only couple weeks that the Erosion occurs in the trailing edge, do you have an explanations for this phenomena ?

RE: Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

Poor steam conditions causing water drop-out in the final stages of the machine. Check your condenser vacuum.

RE: Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

agreed....
verify exhaust cooling sprays are secured as soon as not needed
also extend operation at low load

RE: Erosion in the LP steam turbine last stage

Erosion damage to the trailing edge of last stage blades may also occur at low load due to recirculation of wet steam in the last stage. In these cases, the damage usually appears near the base of the last stage blades. When recirculation occurs, the only solution may be to operate at a higher load.

Best of luck!

(OP)
the other question is related to the welding inspection does the PAUT replace the RT for welding inspection ?

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
