Pratt & Whitney's Gas Turbine Components Exceed 1 Million Hours Run Time

Milestone For Frame 7 Combustion Turbine Systems 

Pratt & Whitney Power System's new and repaired components for the Frame 7FA+e combustion turbine system recently exceeded the 1 million hour mark of run time service. These hours were accumulated through more than 115 sets of varying major turbine hot-section components in power generation applications throughout world-wide markets.

"Surpassing 1 million hours of run time in the demanding Industrial Gas Turbine market demonstrates the dependability of our IGT components," said Charles Levey, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Pratt & Whitney Power Systems. "Our customers have repeatedly chosen Pratt & Whitney as their supplier of replacement components for the Frame 7 for their durability, quality and cost savings."

Benefiting from 85 years of aviation power generation experience, Pratt & Whitney has developed a line of improved industrial gas turbine components with longer-lasting design features, resulting in reduced capital and operating costs for the customers.

Pratt & Whitney says it has improved upon the original Frame 7FA+e equipment by designing nozzles, blades and combustion parts that incorporate company-proprietary alloys and coating systems for superior creep, oxidation and wear performance, ultimately extending part life and reducing operating costs.
