Field Value
Title Equipment failures--surface vanes of turbine runner l-2
Creator Pomeroy, F.B.
Date 1942-07-13
Description Surface of vanes of turbine runner L-2. This view of the inner surface of the runner vanes shows where the paint has been eroded to bright metal along the trailing edge of the vanes. The bright surfaces had a sand blasted appearance as evidence of cavitation. The light molting of these areas shown on the photograph is not pitting, but is rust which quickly formed on the vanes.
