Utility Steam Turbine Brush Seals

Utility Steam Turbine Brush SealLarge utility steam turbines pose one of the most challenging applications for implementing a brush seal. These machines often require a system-level transdisciplinary engineering approach that necessitates:

  • The evaluation of rotor-bearing system dynamics
  •  Rotor system heat stability
  •  Structural integrity analysis of components
  •  Brush seal performance
  •  Compact installation  concepts

Commonly, three locations of brush seal implementation are considered in utility steam turbines: 

  • End-packing seals
  • Interstage shaft seals
  • Turbine bucket tip seals

The engineering experience and breadth of in-house analytical tools at Bearings Plus enable us to provide comprehensive engineering studies to tackle such challenging applications.
