When a gas turbine bearing fails, it can take your entire plant with it. While all outages can’t be eliminated, bearing-related uncertainty can be mitigated through pro-active planning with the right partner. MD&A Bearings, Seals & Hydraulics Division has proudly served as a partner to our clients for nearly three decades.
Rapid-Spares bearing exchange removes uncertainty from the bearing refurbishment process during critical outage intervals by giving customers the assurance that their bearings are ready to ship, in many instances, even before an outage begins. We maintain a new, identical, Rapid-Spare combustion turbine bearing in our inventory for you, eliminating uncertainty, excess costs and freeing up your plant personnel to address on-site critical path items.
Whether you’re experiencing a forced outage or it’s simply time to overhaul your turbine, MD&A first visits your location to conduct a full design survey validation, at no cost to you, while the unit is open. During this evaluation, we measure and record all critical bearing data. These physical measurements and unit-specific information are then cataloged and used to create drawings for production and future reference.
