Gas turbine cleaning

At the beginning of 2014, INREI GmbH and Germany’s largest turbine manufacturer started carrying out extensive tests in gas turbine cleaning, that have contributed to a significant improvement in the cleaning process for our customers.

The blasting tests showed that using garnet as a blasting medium for gas turbine cleaning achieved better cleaning results than those obtained with the most commonly used glass beads, which means that turbine cleaning can be carried out faster and more cost efficiently. Furthermore, it has been shown that lower surface roughness values can be achieved by using garnet as blasting medium. Another disadvantage of using glass beads arose from the fact that glass bead blasting had a negative effect on surface crack testing.
