Natural Gas Turbine Plating & Grinding
A customer in the solar power industry contracted us to repair a number of natural gas turbines with hard ID grinding (inside diameter) and chrome plating. The turbines, which were manufactured from a proprietary forging, had dimensions that ranged in size up to 22" in diameter.
ID grinding was completed on our advanced Heald 273A ID grinder, this capability allows us to grind inside diameters up to 24", and features a 24" swing. Once the ID surface was prepared we applied the required hard chrome plating. This project requires tolerances of ±.0002", which we verify through comprehensive dimensional testing. This service is provided to this customer on an ongoing basis, with 5 day turnovers, and meets all applicable API standards.
