Advanced Rotor Welding

Rotating power generation equipment forged shaft steels are designed to provide reliable operation due to thermal, mechanical, and environmental wear. In some cases, forged shaft steels can be damaged due to this normal wear, causing corrosion pitting, scoring, hardening, low cycle fatigue cracking, high cycle fatigue cracking, stress corrosion cracking, and/or creep cracking.

Procurement of a new rotor shaft forging is a very costly and lengthy process that can take up to 24 months. Alternatively, weld repair or restoration can be accomplished for a fraction of the cost and in less time.

MD&A focuses on offering both in-kind, as well as upgraded weld filler materials that address many of the most common operational and stress-related failures. MD&A is capable of providing full turnkey weld repair and reconditioning services to include equipment inspections and damage assessment, weld repair solution definition and recommendations, baseline and weld repair geometry finite element analysis, as well as root cause failure analysis.
