Gas Turbine Inlet and Exhaust Inspection Capabilities
Dürr Universal provides both courtesy and full, engineered inspections, complete with “course of treatment” recommendations aimed at getting ailing systems back to health. Generally, neglected inlet or exhaust components that are 20 years or older are the primary reason customers seek out an inspection.
Inlet and exhaust inspections at a glance
A courtesy inspection is a free, high-level review of the general condition of the inlet and/or exhaust equipment with photos and suggested repairs. A courtesy inspection is a great way to identify equipment issues.
A full, engineered inspection is a paid, detailed assessment of inlet and/or exhaust system condition. It includes a comprehensive engineering report that details the condition of the equipment inspected and suggests repairs and upgrades.
The most inspected inlet equipment includes:
- Inlet filter house (weather hoods, tube sheets, filter house structure and structural steel)
- Evaporative cooler (steel structures, water piping, pumps, electrical controls, evaporative media/drift eliminators and supporting structures)
- Inlet ducting (steel structures, inlet silencer structural steel and expansion joints)
The most inspected exhaust equipment includes:
- Transition ducting (liner sheets and support components, expansion joints and support steel)
- Baffles (perforated sheets, support bracket and overall wear, as these items typically wear out first)
- Exhaust stack (liner sheets, attachment structures and expansion joints)
- Plenums, cowls and diffusers
When the inspection is complete, customers receive a report containing baseline system conditions, suggested replacements for worn component/systems and retrofit options. Complete budget prices and lead time estimates are also available after the inspection is complete.
