GE’s offline generator inspection solutions include GE’s latest robotic tool technology that can perform a complete generator air gap inspection program with the rotor installed.
Our inspection tool can perform the following assessments:
GE’s generator retaining ring scanner is a robotic inspection tool engineered for detecting stress corrosion cracks without the need to remove the retaining rings from the generator. The inspection only requires minimal dismantling and can be carried out with the rotor in-situ or removed.
GE’s test and inspection program is a set of modular solutions to thoroughly assess the condition of your generator during an outage. Based on decades of experience across one of the largest installed fleets, our diagnostic experts will provide you with a detailed analysis and recommendations for more reliable operation.
The inspection’s scope will match the allowed outage time and take into account the generator model in order to make sure all identified areas of concern are inspected.
Example tests include:
CUPROPLEX is a proven service to remove copper oxide build-up from stator bars and the cooling water system in order to restore cooling efficiency and avoid generator overheating damage.
CUPROPLEX is the only process that can be applied while the generator is online and in normal operation. For heavily flow-restricted bars we have developed CUPROPLEX-S.
We define the scope for your condition-based outage, leveraging our in-depth knowledge of all types of turbo generators and schedule the necessary actions to address the duration and lower downtime for your plant. We execute with qualified generator field specialists and the latest tool technology.
GE Gas Power can provide customized training solutions to meet your individual needs, covering introductions for new employees, and development programs for your talents as well as individual training courses to bring your teams up to speed to safely execute their tasks during daily operations and generator field maintenance.
