Sulzer Turbo Services successfully implemented a unique retrofit for a steam turbine for operation in a dual mode. As a result, the customer can now generate electricity during the summer and sell steam to a pharmaceutical plant during the winter, which maximizes the profitability of the plant's operation. Sulzer Turbo Services, through its sound engineering, offers tailored solutions to one-off problems that the OEMs would not typically show the flexibility to tackle.

Sulzer Technical Review | Year: 2013
Sulzer offers customized weld repair solutions for critical rotating equipment. In some situations, conventional rotor weld repair procedures cannot be used on certain components. The required postweld heat treatment of such procedures would result in permanent distortions and loss of critical dimensional tolerances. Sulzer engineers have developed a specialized weld procedure for gas turbine disks that addresses this issue and makes repair with a fast turnaround possible.
