TG314 - (W) Steam Turbine Valve Maintenance

| Print |

2 days - 1.3 Continuing Education Units Awarded

On-Site-Only


Improve the effectiveness of your Westinghouse steam turbine valve maintenance activities.
REDUCE: Outage Durations, Outage Extensions, Work Duplication, and Rework.
INCREASE: Outage Intervals, Reliability, Availability, and Productivity.

Greater unit reliability and availability can be achieved through proper routine valve maintenance activity. Quality valve maintenance outages are the result of thorough job planning and a complete understanding of the equipment, specifications, and procedures.

This Seminar has been designed for Westinghouse steam turbine facility foremen, supervisors, mechanics, engineers, and all other plant personnel who are concerned with increasing the effectiveness and reducing the cost of steam turbine valve maintenance outages.

OBJECTIVES:
Upon successful completion of this Seminar the participant will have:
  1. Identify safety precautions that must be adhered to during a turbine steam valve inspection and repair outage.
  2. Describe the various inspections performed during disassembly of turbine steam valves.
  3. Describe the procedures for cleaning and inspecting the turbine steam valve components.
  4. Describe the impact of the various types of defects on turbine efficiency and reliability.
  5. Describe the criteria used to evaluate turbine steam valve component defects.
  6. Describe the various repair methods for defective steam valve component conditions.
HPC is prepared to instruct this Seminar as developed by equipment-experienced instructors that offer a broad range of practical experience on numerous types and sizes of steam turbine generators.
