Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Operational Energy, Roberto Guerrero, watches demonstration of Sonic Infrared inspection by Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc., Jupiter, Fla., January 9, 2018. Innovating compressor blade inspection
Blade defects decrease engine efficiency and power, while increasing fuel burn (specific fuel consumption) and exhaust gas temperature (EGT) - resulting in higher maintenance costs, and decreased aircraft availability. Additionally, defective compressor blades can pose a safety threat if not replaced in a timely manner. While researching areas for increased aircraft optimization, Air Force Operational Energy found that cost-effective and reliable blade inspection ensures engines are performing optimally, and is paramount to maintaining aircraft readiness.
