IMPORTANT! – Service bulletin LM6000-IND-0302
OEM Service bulletin LM6000-IND-0302 recommends to install a full set of 15 Aero Fluid Products gas check valves in the fuel lines to prevent back flow of hot combustion gas and pressure into the C-manifold. This is a known problem in the fuel system of LM6000 PB, PD and PF engines.
The backflow of hot air in the gas manifold can cause issues within the manifold leading to braze joint separation. This can result in unsafe situations where gas can enter into the package. Other known effects are unplanned engine trips. As a result it is recommended in the service bulletin to carry out this upgrade at the first opportunity. This could be a next shutdown or periodic inspection at the latest.
VBR Turbine Partners can complete the work required by the service bulletin on-site in one working day.
