Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power and process industries, is expanding its Turbine Technology Services facility in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. to include a center of excellence for F-class rotor repair.
The facility also provides repairs on mature and F-Class frame industrial gas and steam turbines and includes complete in-house coating capability, automated 5-axis laser welding, a metallurgical laboratory, a high-capacity vacuum and conventional heat treating facility, and a machine and weld shop. The facility is also ISO 9001:2008 certified.
Dresser-Rand Turbine Technology Services currently has 8175 m2 under roof. The new F-class rotor shop will add an additional 2229 m2 with a 68-tonne crane and 15.2 m under hook, adequate for F-class rotors up to Frame 9, Dresser-Rand said. The expanded area will allow Dresser-Rand to provide service for all brands of industrial gas and steam turbine rotors, including blade replacement, un-stacking and re-stacking, balancing, and nondestructive testing.
