This two-day Seminar was developed to provide the attendee with a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of maintenance of small and intermediate sized steam turbines. These STG sets are used in industrial plant powerhouses to provide process steam at various pressures and to produce electricity for plant power consumption, in utility power plants as the drive unit for boiler feed pumps, and the drive device for gas compressors.

Industrial plant powerhouse and utility power plant, supervisors, operators, engineers, and maintenance personnel who are concerned with increasing the effectiveness and reducing the cost of steam turbine maintenance outages should attend this Seminar. Attendees will learn the differences between large utility turbine maintenance and maintenance on mechanical drive turbines.

OBJECTIVES:
Upon successful completion of this Seminar the participant should be able to:
  1. Describe the major activities associated with turbine maintenance.
  2. Identify and define the items of concern related to turbine maintenance activity.
  3. Identify the types of defects encountered during turbine maintenance inspections.
  4. Identify the relationship between operational effects and maintenance activity.
  5. Describe the various inspections performed during disassembly of the turbine.
  6. Describe the procedures for cleaning and inspecting the turbine components.
  7. Describe the impact of the various types of defects on turbine efficiency and reliability.
  8. Describe the criteria used to evaluate turbine component defects.
  9. Describe the various repair methods for defective component condition.
  10. Describe the details required for an effective steam path audit.
  11. Describe the methods used to properly align turbine components.
  12. Describe the criteria used to establish unit specific maintenance clearances.
