Improving the heat rate of your gas turbine is an easy way to save money on your plant’s largest O&M Expense, Fuel. Whether it is cloth side seals, brush seals, or honeycomb seals, APG can help you in determining the appropriate sealing technologies to improve your unit’s heat rate.
Our certified technicians provide field services, thus saving your valuable business time and money in shipping the parts to our Houston facility. We have preowned inventory to replace old turbine seals while engineering new ones in compliance with the highest quality standards.
All thanks to our advanced diagnostics and engineering technology, APG guarantees world-class sealing technology solutions that accurately work for various turbine applications.
Stationary Parts Sealing
Seal Clearance Reductions
Liquid or gas leakage can significantly reduce turbine efficiency. That’s where our stationary parts sealing comes into the picture. We use mechanical seals (O-rings, gaskets, and diaphragms) to contain the flowing liquid within the housing compartment as a rotating shaft enters. Ensuring the fluid is contained inside and contaminants like dust and debris remain outside, our sealing solutions help preserve the stationary parts of the turbine.
Gas turbines operate at high speeds and temperatures, leading to gas or oil leaks if the shaft is not correctly sealed. Our effective shaft-sealing solutions prevent the leakage of lubricants, gases, or fluids, ensuring that the turbine operates efficiently and safely while reducing toxic gas emissions and improving the gas equipment's lifespan.
APG uses labyrinth seals and other uniquely designed clearance seals to protect turbines from leakages while improving performance and efficiency. Our engineers work towards reducing seal clearances while adding to the availability and reliability of the turbines. Ensuring that contaminants do not affect operational efficiency and maximize savings. We also use brush seals for the most common GE Frame 9, 7, 6, and 5 models and the Westinghouse 501 series.
APG provides comprehensive shaft sealing solutions for GE, Siemens, and other global brands.
Our extensive knowledge and experience help us determine the best seal for industrial gas turbines of different models and makes.
Our engineers will work with clients to determine the best sealing solution for your project. From selecting to installing the seal and beyond, we can help improve the heat rate of the unit.
