Gas-Tight Exhaust Joint Upgrade for GE 7FA Flex Seal
Gas-Tight Exhaust Joint Upgrade for GE 7FA Flex Seal

As with most power plant equipment that experiences deterioration from continuous operation, the GE Flex Seal plates can lose their sealing capabilities and flexibility over time. As a result, excessive hot gases are released into the surrounding atmosphere, endangering critical control wiring and equipment. Cold air can also enter the turbine, reducing thermal performance.
