Precision Measurement of Turbine Blade Sockets

Normally when a steam supply valve to a turbine fails open, the turbine begins to over-speed.Â-  The Over-speed Limiter generally will operate to shut the turbine down to preclude any damage.  However, when the limiter fails, damage usually occurs within the turbine. The picture above shows the last stage of a steam turbine which went into over-speed and the limiter failed. ...

3D Laser Scan of Waste Water Treatment Plant

BC Engineering and Design engineers recently spent two days on site at a waste water treatment plant performing a 3D Laser scan of three levels and two rooms. A total of 37 scans were taken using a FARO FOCUS 3D scanner.Â-  The scans were registered into one point cloud using FARO Scene, VirtuSurv, and Kubit software to develop a 3D file to the customer. the file was exported to an external...
