Rotor Repairs & Inspections

Each rotor repair starts with an inspection, the inspection provides a complete assessment of the rotor condition.

An API 687 inspection includes:

Depending on the condition of the rotor, the following may be included in the rotor repair:

  • Rotor journal repairs by welding, laser cladding or HVOF coating
  • Spare parts: manufacturing of new impellers, shafts, blades, diaphragms, blade carriers, etc.
  • Reblading
  • Replacement of seal strips
  • Low speed balancing
  • High speed balancing
