Blade Frequency Testing

SimuTech provides a frequency testing service for new, refurbished, or reverse engineered turbine blades (buckets) to ensure that their natural frequencies are within specifications. This is especially critical for longer tuned steam turbine blades that are susceptible to high-cycle fatigue failure due to resonance during operation.

Frequency testing also proves valuable for quality assurance of industrial gas turbine (combustion turbine) blades.

SimuTech has extensive experience with vibration test fixture design and quality assurance frequency testing.
