A crack or breakage developing within gas turbine exhaust ducts can have a detrimental effect upon oil and gas production, as almost the whole platform needs to be shutdown should such a failure occur. Exhaust duct failure is particularly prevalent in the oil and gas industry, as the weight restrictions on offshore platforms means many ... Read more.

Gas turbine exhaust ducts are key components in the oil and gas industry, with failures can being catastrophic in terms of both safety and production. A failure of an exhaust duct usually means that as the walls crack, hot exhaust gases burn through the insulation, or large parts of the duct section are removed. These ... Read more.
