Vibration Analysis of Gas Turbine’s Transportation Carrigage and Warranty Issues
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the investigation of whether the vibration shock limits were exceeded on the transportation of 2 gas turbines. This investigation was requested due to an improper suspension type of the carriage used in the transport and the OEM consideration if vibration limits were exceeded during the route. It ultimately lead to a contractual impasse where the OEM required full bearing inspection prior to commissioning as a prerequisite to maintain the warranty on the equipment which the client did not agree to follow without further investigation.
