Compressor Inlet Casing

Compressor Inlet Casing operating in a Nuclear Plant

  • Compressor manufactured in 1964 by HSM (Denmark)
  • During operation a defect in the inlet casing Pressure Boundary developed.
  • Temporarily patched by the client to resume operation.
  • Our scope: Reverse engineer the casing and manufacture an identical replacement part to be installed during the next outage.
  • Compressor casing was contaminated with nuclear products.
    • Non Contact Laser scanning technology allowed for the capturing of surface geometry data without direct contact to the components
