Casing/Shell Analysis & Renovation
Most turbine casing problems are unexpected and found during normal turbine overhauls.
MD&A offers a full array of engineering and steam turbine repair services which determine the root cause of casing/shell failure and we can respond immediately to your needs. We provide unmatched turbine support—from computer-aided “stress” analysis, metallurgical testing, and innovative solutions to complete turnkey repairs and operating software.
MD&A is unique in that we first evaluate the cause of failure, feasibility of repair options, and the remaining operating life of your turbine before we implement a repair procedure.
Appropriate solutions—whether to replace, repair, or redesign various components—are based on our analysis of the problem. If a repair is the most prudent solution, we provide proprietary methods and turnkey repair service. All repair procedures for cracked, distorted, or eroded turbine casings and diaphragms are performed in accordance with ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel guidelines as well as our own proven procedures.
The final result is a proven repair solution with design upgrades, the latest technology, and engineering expertise to ensure long-lasting service. Depending on the problem, MD&A customers can expect 15-25 years of repair reliability.
