End of Life Evaluation
The Design Service Life, aka End of Life (EOL), of a gas turbine rotor can be based off statistical predictions of component life, based on an assumed operational mission mix; each rotor component is influenced differently by operational stresses, temperatures and duty cycles. We look at the Gas Turbine Rotor & Compressor Rotor. An EOL Evaluation can help decide if component Repair, Replace or Use is the best option for your gas turbine rotor to meet operational and maintenance forecasts.
MD&A's EOL Evaluation includes:
- Review of Operational History
- Component inspections to predict remaining life of critical components
- Metallurgical analysis to characterize the current properties of the component material
- Engineering analysis which includes our service recommendations and the next EOL Evaluation inspection interval
