Power Generation Applications

 

 
Fast, accurate thermographic NDT
 
Whether inspecting components for wind turbines, power plants or aircraft engines,  Thermographic NDT is a proven solution for a wide range of applications. TWI solutions enable evaluation of sub-surface characteristics of components during manufacturing, QA, or maintenance and repair.

 
 
Common Power Generation Applications
  • Wall and Coating Thickness
  • Structural Integrity
  • Hole Blockage
  • Disbonds
  • Water Ingress
  • Adhesion
  • Cracks
  • Corrosion

 
Quality Assurance in the Manufacture of Turbine Airfoils
 
The process of manufacturing turbine airfoils requires multiple inspections using diverse test procedures throughout casting, machining and coating.  Many of these inspections are time-intensive, manual processes, such as pin or wire testing for blockages. 

TWI developed the T3S Thermographic Turbine Test Station to consolidate the  multiple inspection processes into a single system using one technology -- thermography.
