STUCKED ROTOR SAFE REMOVAL BY SEAL RING DiSTRUCION ON CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR.
DEDICATED TOOL FOR PROGRESSIVE DRILLING WITHOPUT CASE/ROTOR DAMAGE.
FOCUS OF THE MECHANICAL PROCESSING |
We carried out a customized on-field machining process in order to release a rotor stuck by a seized seal ring.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR THIS ON-SITE MECHANICAL PROCESSING |
For executing this project a special tool was designed and manufactured on specific dimensional details of the compressor casing. The “drilling mask” was meant to be assembled on the casing so as to carry out a progressive drilling by a machine tool placed at considerable distance from point of drill.
ACHIEVED RESULTS |
At the end of machining, all the compressor parts were intact and the rotor was safely extracted.
