MD&A generator would like to present proper inspection methods for main leads and retaining rings.  These methods will include proper inspection when the unit is assembled and disassembled.  In addition, we will dissect different types of failure mechanisms of main leads as well as retaining rings.  Finally, we will conclude the presentation with multiple case studies on both retaining ring and main lead failures.

Key Takeaways:

  1. How high cycle fatigue can damage main lead components and how to properly prevent reoccurring damage
  2. How to properly inspect retaining rings and main leads when the unit is assembled and disassembled
  3. Case studies that demonstrate if proper maintenance isn’t occurring what that damage could lead to
