Dense Pack Steam Path Redesign

Revitalize Your Steam Turbine 

Improve the efficiency of your steam turbine and reset the clock on asset life. The Dense Pack* steam path redesign upgrades high pressure (HP) or intermediate pressure (IP) sections including new rotor and stationary components inside the existing turbine shell. This can draw additional performance from a mature steam turbine. It’s a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to individual component repair or replacement decisions.

What Can Dense Pack Do for You? 

  • Extend the life of your steam turbine with a new “drop-in” steam path.
  • Improve efficiency with modern components that reduce aerodynamic losses and leakages.
  • Increase output at the same inlet steam flow with components that operate at a lower heat rate.
  • Reduce maintenance costs by increasing resistance to solid particle erosion (SPE), extending inspection intervals, and eliminating rotor bore and associated maintenance.

How We Get You There

  • Together, we create customized solutions for your existing steam turbine that meet your output and efficiency needs and accommodate existing generator and ancillary equipment.
  • Specialist researchers and technicians have created advanced aerodynamic buckets, nozzles and advanced sealing technologies while taking advantage of modern mechanical design evolutions to create the most effective steam path system.
  • Our global presence and field staffing mean we can respond quickly and help you meet tight outage schedules.
  • Experienced engineers assess whether your existing generator and other components can handle the additional output and recommend complementary upgrade options.
  • The Dense Pack Steam Path solution can be scheduled into a planned outage.
