Turbine, Compressor and Other Rotating Machinery

From motors running air handling units, compressors in petrochemical plants, and steam and gas turbines in power generation plants, rotating machinery plays a varied role in essential technology. We rely heavily on the continuous and efficient operation of these machines in our domestic lives, as well as when running our businesses. For failure to occur in one of these machines the impact is usually catastrophic and costly.

From geothermal power plants on the side of volcanic mountains of Yogyakarta in Indonesia to the hydropower plants on the water falls of the Zongo river in Bolivia, our experts have been relied upon to investigate catastrophic failures of various types of machinery and analyse the contributing factors. Some examples include:

  • Compressors in petrochemical plants
  • Shredder motors in metal recycling
  • Steam turbines in geothermal power plants
  • Generators in hydropower plants
  • Gas turbines in grain processing plants

Our experts have worked with different OEMs of rotating machinery, collaborating on detailed investigations of failures in different types of equipment. We have first-hand knowledge of the design and specifications of many different types of equipment.

Our expert reports and testimony regarding the failure of turbines and other rotating machinery has been critical in providing understanding to the courts about the failure of turbines, compressors and other rotating machinery.

We have also worked closely with the operators of various rotating machines. When required we have audited systems, provided feedback on condition monitoring, and supervised repair and maintenance regimes.
