Gas Turbines Benefit from Radial Fit Bolts on CCPP’sBy Pilgrim International
As the new millennium dawned, the intense newbuild programme of combined-cycle power plants (CCPPs) in the US was underway to increase efficiency and reduce electricity production costs.
It is common knowledge that ‘conventional coupling bolts’ suffer from seizure, which results in damage to both the bolt and coupling bolt hole each time they are removed. All of which creates additional costs to that of bolt replacement.
Siemens Westinghouse decided to tackle this problem and specified PILGRIM’s Radial Fit Bolt for 43 newbuild 501F Gas Turbines.
