Critical steam turbine blade redesign increases reliability and production

By: Sulzer

Sulzer experts shared a preeminent blade failure and tailored redesigning solution on December 6, 2022, during a webinar. Now available on-demand.

Repair over replacement is the real solution to critical failures

The acquisition of any highly engineered plant comes with the challenges of adopting and adapting to assets with unknown history or reliability track record. Turning to an independent service provider (ISP) with best-in-class technology and engineering solutions is the optimal approach.

Our client faced a challenge when its new Delaval Topping turbine caused an operational set back at an ammonia site due to critical rotor blade failure. Although a spare unit was available, the plant production rate was compromised. Our client turned to Sulzer for its expertise in failure analysis. Sulzer offered solutions to reengineer and modify the blade design, which restored the plant production rate and mitigated future failure.

Regardless of your equipment’s maturity or condition, Sulzer’s one-stop-capabilities prove effective for asset management, repair and reliability. This webinar will showcase how Sulzer’s expertise, flexibility and solutions decrease downtime and optimize production.
