Steam Turbine Alignment
Digital measurements have made scheduled maintenance of a steam turbine engine at a West Texas power plant an iterative process of measure, assess, and adjust from stage to stage. Using laser trackers and 3D scanners, field engineers work far more quickly – and are far more confident of their accuracy – than if they were to measure purely by hand.
Quality inspection of turbine equipment is a Dimensional Engineering specialty. At the West Texas site and at other power and processing plants, we have helped our clients root out problems in turbine operation, make the needed modifications, and validate the equipment designs more quickly, easily, and accurately than ever before.
