GT11 / GT13 / GT24 / GT26 Combustion Parts Reconditioning
Qualified GT11 / GT13 / GT24 / GT26 combustion parts reconditioning utilizing advanced reconditioning technologies. More than 400 parts have been reconditioned with typically less than 1 piece rejected out of a 24 pieces set. The GT26 reconditioning process was developed and implemented in strong cooperation with the OEM ensuring high performance, reliability, availability and reconditioning to the latest design through modification and upgrades.
In the inspection phase parts are inspected and assessed using advanced NDT, Xray, CMM in conjunction with trained inspectors. Findings are reported and per part reconditioning recommendations are made.
In the repair phase parts are stripped, cleaned and disassembled. Parts are weld repaired, EDM and CNC machined before coating and final inspection. All part receive rigorous flow tuning and verification to ensure engine operations with low temperature spread, optimal combustion performance and low emissions.
