Energy- Failure of Turbine

Reasons why a turbine fails to generate electricity

Fishbone template on Failure of Turbine

Understanding the causes of turbine failure can help in identifying potential issues early, implementing preventive maintenance measures, and ensuring the continued safe and efficient operation of turbines. Regular inspection, maintenance, and monitoring are keys to mitigating these failure risks.

A turbine is a mechanical device that converts energy from a fluid, such as air, steam, or water, into rotational mechanical energy. Turbines are widely used in various applications to generate power, including electricity generation, propulsion systems for aircraft and ships, and industrial processes. There are several types of turbines, including steam, gas, hydraulic and wind turbines. Turbines play a crucial role in various industries and applications, as they efficiently convert different forms of energy into mechanical power or electricity. They are a fundamental component in power generation, transportation, and many industrial processes.

Failure of Turbine

  •   Unbalance
  •   Vibration


  •  10 yrs or above piece of equipment


  •  Premature breakdown of bearing timers
  •  Material removal from shaft surface


  •   Lack of appropriate equipment


  •   Lack of skilled labor
