Turbine Component Prep for NDE

Curran International provides on-site/in-situ dry abrasive surface prep of components for NDE inspection for rotating equipment, combined cycle, gas and coal-fired steam turbines. The turbine grit blasting surface prep provides the power station with an optimal cleaning of critical turbine components yielding high integrity NDE/NDT inspections.
