Report on thermography practice

Application Report

The SIEMENS AG uses ceramic coatings in the production of turbine blades for thermal power plants, since it makes higher turbine infeed temperatures possible, which lead to higher efficiency.

During this process, it is necessary to ensure the accurate fabrication of the coatings without impact on the flow passages. Mr. Sczepurek and his team are in charge of the required test methods and processes. He chose infrared thermography as a non-destructive testing method, since it delivers the capability to measure large turbine parts very quickly and reliably. InfraTec supports this project by delivering reliable high-power thermal cameras of the series ImageIR ®, which is produced in Dresden. With the high geometric resolution and frame rate as well as the precise trigger ability, ImageIR ® makes it possible to test every turbine reliably in an economically acceptable time frame.
