Borescopes for Turbine Components Inspection
Steam Turbine, Gas Turbine and Wind Turbine Non Destructive Testing with Videoscope
Turbines and generators are essential pieces of machinery that need to be adequately maintained and repaired to ensure maximum service life and safety. Non-destructive remote visual inspection with a video borescope is a cost-effective and efficient way to inspect without having to disassemble a turbine. Steam and gas turbines run at extremely high pressures, and they need to be kept in good mechanical shape to do their jobs efficiently.
Not only is efficiency a concern; no one wants to learn there is a problem with the gas turbine in their engine while in use. Proper maintenance checks can also play a huge role in ensuring the functionality and safety of these engines. Safety is also a concern when working with steam-powered turbines. Finding mechanical changes before they become problems allow repairs to be made before there are losses in productivity. It can lessen the amount of production lost to unexpected shutdowns for repair. Our video borescopes
allow hard to reach places to be visualized and include a light source to illuminate the area under inspection. This allows gas or steam turbines to be monitored for wear and tear, and problem areas to be identified, without having to dismantle the whole unit.
The portable nature of videoscopes means they can be used virtually anywhere turbines are located. Video of inspection process can also be recorded and stored for future reference. You can keep a record of past inspections to identify possible future problems before they affect the efficiency of your system. Proper use of video borescopes to inspect turbines will save you time and money and help ensure the ongoing safety of the equipment. Benefits of using video borescopes to inspect turbines:
- Do safety inspections without having to dismantle the turbine
- Record inspections for future reference (monitor small changes over time)
- Visualize hard to reach places
- Locate foreign objects
- Find a problem and know what to expect before turbines are taken apart
Depends on nature of inspection and type of turbine you can find a wide selection of videoscopes. To inspect extra small bores and cavities from 0.4mm diameter micro borescopes
will be the best choice. If inspection should be done remotely on the distance up to 30 meters, check our Orion Video Borescope
, and Explosion proof Videoscope-XT
. New industrial inspection systems with remote measuring capability are also available.
