A study of casing distortion in General Electric MS3002 gas turbines used in the oil and gas industry revealed significant distortion for MS3002 Models C through G. The primary distortion problem was ovalization of the turbine casing, which could occur in either the horizontal or vertical directions. Malfunctioning of the water cooling system, or improper disassembly and assembly procedures can cause casing distortion. The MS3002 Models A-G gas turbines have water cooled turbine casings, and malfunctioning of their cooling water systems, regardless of distortion, is also a significant problem.
