GE issued a technical information letter outlining inspection requirements for detecting rotor forward shaft dovetail cracks in its 7F gas turbine compressor wheels. Cracks were recently detected in two units on the pressure face of the R0 dovetail area of the wheel.
”A crack gone undetected can result in catastrophic failure of the compressor section and ultimately, substantial costs in component replacement,” said Veracity Senior Developmental Engineer
Veracity’s new non-destructive inspection system uses a 128-element linear array that provides unparalleled detectability, and has been proven in both military and power generating applications. Inspection can be completed in as little as 4-6 hours.
Veracity urges users of the 7F fleet to review the GE technical inspection letter carefully to fully understand the requirements for their unit’s configuration.
