Project reports

A feature of our worldwide projects is their high level of innovation. From shot peening and high-end blasting to total concepts in the maritime and offshore industries.

Shot peening installations for an OEM of gas turbines

For an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) of gas turbines, Straaltechniek International developed two customised shot peening installations. Each with its own specific characteristics for the different applications.

Gas turbines are used in environments where high demands are made on efficiency, reliability, flexibility and the environment. A high return on investment means that these machines are suitable for a wide range of clients, varying from utility companies and electricity producers to numerous industrial users. A significant requirement here is high productivity and a long service life.

Straaltechniek International supplied the following two machines:

An installation for shot peening gas turbine blades by means of ceramic beads.

This installation is fitted with 12 programmable nozzles, thereby realising a fully automatic shot peening process. Moreover, the complete recovery and classification of blasting media was provided for.
