When non-destructive evaluations give reasons for concern or when there are other concerns, such as over-firing the turbine or running beyond OEM recommended life, TEServices can provide you with a more comprehensive evaluation. Life assessment combines metallurgical evaluation at critical locations with mechanical testing. Stress rupture testing reveals the true strength of the material at elevated temperatures. The life assessment evaluation together with the history of the part can determine the remaining life time of the component.
Life extensions of components including the above described metallurgical evaluations together with mechanical testing, models, and other experiences of that specific component enables TEServices to assess the remaining life.
