Field & Site Services | NDE & Borescope Inspections
Minimize Outage Duration and Optimize your Plants Availability
EthosEnergy is committed to providing outstanding, responsive, on-site service solutions to improve operating plant competitiveness and profitability.
To achieve this goal, field personnel teams are equipped with advanced Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) tools to allow for experienced specialists to perform extensive and accurate turbine inspections.
Advanced NDE technology allows experts to visually inspect numerous areas of equipment that are otherwise inaccessible without the disassembly of major components. Visual inspections performed by our specialists minimize outage durations, help to effectively plan for future outages, and optimize overall plant availability.
High-Temperature Borescopes Reduce Lost Generating Capabilities
We utilize high-temperature borescopes for the inspection of hot parts in gas turbines and steam turbines, which allows for a visual inspection of equipment shortly after shutdown. This new video system delivers high-quality images that specialists can evaluate immediately and then initiate appropriate service measures.
As a high-temperature borescope makes it possible for inspection to begin at temperatures as high as 1,000°F, up to eight hours of turbine cool downtime can be eliminated, potentially reducing lost generating capability.
Once all pre-inspection requirements are met, the new turbine inspection process can begin within 30 minutes of the outage team’s arrival on site. With a high-temperature borescope, one qualified specialist can perform the inspection of critical parts is often less than two hours.
