Maple Drastically Reduces Downtime of Steam Turbines by Improving the Ultrasonic Testing of Rotor Blades

View Case Study

Challenge
Rotek needed to design a pre-inspection simulation model to reduce the time required to inspect the last stage blade roots of the rotors in the low pressure areas of steam turbines.

Solution
Using Maple, Rotek was able to create a precise model of the ultrasonic inspection routine. The inspection parameters, including the optimal ultrasonic equipment settings and most critical shot locations, were verified before actual testing began.
