The customer was using an eight year old Siemens 501F gas turbine to provide steam to the process header.
The original Rexroth gas valve on the customer’s gas turbine had become obsolete and required an upgrade. Although a Rexroth gas valve was originally installed on the Siemens 501F gas turbine, the turbine’s user manual called for gas valves from Moog. Additionally, the customer had been facing lead times in excess of 30 weeks in order to source replacement parts from the manufacturer in Germany. Due to the long lead times for replacement parts, the customer needed a gas valve solution that could reduce lead times and mitigate the risk of late replacement parts during outages.
