Steam Turbine Repairs
The wet steam environment in the last stages of a condensing steam turbine (including D-11 and A-10 steam turbines), combined with very high tip speeds on long, last stage blades, leads to erosion damage at the leading edge of low-pressure (LP) blading.
As an alternative to purchasing new steam turbine blades which comes with a high price and lead time, EthosEnergy offers a refurbishment of used blades that is cost-effective, has a reduced lead time, and restores the blade to its original aerodynamic profile. This repair extends the life of the blades and improves operation of the unit.

Our expert team of skilled engineers and craftsmen have developed an innovative process that restores the 40-inch titanium blade by machining the eroded area, and either welding a titanium insert or weld building with titanium, depending on the extent of the erosion damage. A full inspection is completed after the process to ensure the integrity of the repair.
