Welcome to MD&A’s San Antonio Service Center in San Antonio, Texas. Our Gas Turbine Parts Service Facility provides repair services for large-frame gas turbines, with proven expertise on frame 7EA, 6FA,7FA, 9FA, V84, and V94 combustion and hot gas path components.
The first step of MD&A’s gate process is referred to as Strip and Inspect. On Incoming Inspection, we tag and catalog each part and also strip them with grit blaster booths. This stage includes Airflow and Dimensional Inspection then a Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection, or FPI, which uses blacklight technology to pinpoint any cracks. The Ultrasonic Inspection is a completely automated, ultrasonic underwater test that provides thirty-eight points of precise measurement
Gate Two is the Repair stage. With the goal of returning a part to its original state, this stage begins with a Solution Vacuum Heat Treatment Process. MD&A utilizes the industry’s most advanced Welding techniques, including hot box and hand blending.
Our shop has individual welding booths assigned to each part. We have blade repair and vane repair specific sections. All of MD&A’s crews are certified in their specific area of expertise and creates creating a facility that epitomizes the best in service and value. CNC machining delivers cuts that are precise and uniform every time. Unlike hand drilling, Electro Discharge Machining, or EDM, assures part conformity.
The last stage of the Gate Process is the Final Inspection. Once a part has gone through another visual inspection, it is ready for Coating. Our coatings extend the life of the components. HVOF or High-velocity oxygen fuel, is a base coat applied at the speed of sound. A proprietary 3-layer Thermal barrier Coating System or TBC is applied to High-technology components using our vertically cracked Ultra–Dense Coating System (UDC). Parts are then weighed during Moment Weigh and go through Sequencing to balance the turbine perfectly.
An ISO-Certified, F-Class Repair Center of Excellence, MD&A delivers industry-leading solutions with processes and parts that are backed by guarantees. Together, we Power through Experience!Tags: Video, OEM alternative, gas turbine parts
