Rotor Air Coolers

With various processes using high pressure and high temperature, Key equipment are subject to SCC – Stress-Corrosion-Cracking which combines simultaneous action of corrodents and sustained tensile stress. 

This kind of failure are mostly observed in many combined cycle plants with 501 F and 501 G gas turbines. The new BALCKE-DÜRR Rotor Air Cooler solves the Stress Corrosion problem faced by many 501 F and 501 G gas turbines. 

The innovative BALCKE-DÜRR patent on specific material eliminates the need for an expansion joint. Consequently, the stress on the other critical parts is significantly reduced compared to conventional solutions. Additionally, parts are protected against excessive fatigue from thermal cycling. 

Main features

  • High manufacturing quality from Germany or Italy
  • Stress corrosion resistant material and design
  • Critical parts are specially designed to eliminate stress
  • Low Thermal Stress
  • Fits into existing plant layout without any adjustments
