Abstract : IN THE PROPOSED ADJUSTABLE GUIDE VANE ASSEMBLY FOR CENTRIPETAL TURBINES, THE AXLES OF THE ROTOR NOZZLE VANES ARE MOUNTED IN BUSHINGS IN THE BAFFLE WASHED BY THE HOT GASES. The baffle is made of heat-resistant steel and shields the body from heat, moving freely on cylindrical radial joints, and the eccentric axles of the ball bearings of the supply disc are mounted directly on the body of the guide vane assembly, which compensates for thermal deformations and allows stepless change of the angle of setting of the guide vanes.
