MISTRAS' ACTMS™ detects problems in Combustion Turbines while they are in service
Originally developed to detect cracking in stator vanes of 7FA units, the ACTMS™ can also detect clash, rubbing, and foreign object impacts in many makes and models of turbines. Not only can the ACTMS™ detect problems, it can tell you which damage mechanism is occurring. The sensors are mounted on the outside of the compressor case, 12 for 7FA and 8 for the 7EA, and provide accurate location of cracking, clash and rubbing activity, by stage and radial position.
Call or email us today to find out about how the ACTMS can help avoid failures at your plant.
"We have found ACTMS to be effective in detecting stationary airfoil cracking
on running combustion turbine compressors."
