Renewal Parts Maintenance was founded in 1984 on a firm foundation of turbine generator maintenance technical competency. This competency and the constructive input of loyal repeat customers provide the basis for insightful questions and answers that ultimately define a customized level of service beyond the norm.
RPM is a proud member of Mechanical Dynamics and Analysis, the largest independent, full service provider of turbine generator maintenance and repairs in the U.S. The employees of RPM would like to extend a sincere thank you to all repeat customers for their loyal patronage and constructive input through the years.
RPM has an electronic document storage library of customer service records dating back to 1984. Repeat customers rely heavily on this information resource when troubleshooting problems, tracking performance trends and planning preventative maintenance.
Loyal, repeat RPM customers expressed the need to shorten outage durations and reduce overall outage costs. In response, RPM developed a level of service design to substantially reduce the manpower traditionally associated with the field fitting of hydrogen seals, tilt pad journal and thrust bearings.
Central load dispatch centers and modern DCS plant controls have placed new demands on turbine MHC governor and ancillary component response. RPM provides performance test verification of hydraulic control components to greatly reduce the need for field adjustments during start up.
Troubleshooting the source of differential thrust bearing temperatures can be frustrating and costly, especially if load reduction action is required. RPM has earned the trust of many customers to perform precise and correct tapered land thrust bearing repairs since 1984.
The list of potential conditions contributing to unstable vibration trends can be endless. RPM has helped many customers eliminate the variable of bearing mounting mechanical looseness by performing complete restoration of the spherical ball–ring fit.
Field adjustment of a mechanical overspeed governor can be a risky and costly exercise. Sending an overspeed governor to RPM for bench testing is considered a cost effective form of risk management by many repeat customers. RPM also offers complete extension shaft service, which includes dynamic balancing and the repair or replacement of pump and seal ring components.
