The borescope inspection (BI) enables a non-invasive assessment of the internal components of your gas turbine, eliminating the need for disassembly. This inspection helps determine the current condition of the components and assists in planning necessary maintenance or repair work. A scheduled or unscheduled borescope inspection can increase turbine availability and significantly reduce downtime and repair costs. Failing to perform a borescope inspection could lead to critical failures and hazardous situations. Depending on the gas turbine model, a scheduled borescope inspection is typically performed every 4,000 to 8,000 hours or annually (whichever comes first) to prevent damage.
How it works
A borescope is an optical camera that allows non-intrusive inspection of internal components without disassembly. Our experienced engineers use a flexible tube equipped with a camera to navigate through tight spaces within your gas turbine. High-quality photos taken during the inspection reveal even the smallest irregularities. Our comprehensive BI report includes detailed descriptions and accompanying photos of the condition of each component, providing evidence that can be used for information gathering.
This inspection methodology helps identify potential issues before they escalate and cause damage or, in the worst-case scenario, result in a complete shutdown of your power plants.
