Restorative Maintenance Procedure for the Treatment of Stress Corrosion Cracking in Power Generation Steam Turbines

This innovation effectively restores Stress Corrosion Cracking in steam turbine rotors in the power generation industry through a controlled rotary grinding process, followed by a surface peening technique to induce a favourable surface stress to extend components’ use.


Being driven by the opportunity to be able to contribute solutions, developed locally, to real world engineering problems.
