BES PRACTICE IN STEAM TURBINE SERVICE: Solutions for your steam turbine re-blading problems

Sam will be presenting Solutions for your steam turbine re-blading problems at 11:00 am on Day 2 of the event, 16th March.

Issues to look out for

When reblading a rotor, it is often not known what issues may be encountered until the project is already part way through.

Case study

We explore one case study which includes pin finger root attachments where all holes had a large amount of miss alignment in two plains.

Project examples

Our other example had internal two hook dovetail root attachments where the gate was found to have a large amount of ovality in locking hole.
