INLET COOLING

 

Inlet Cooling to cool ambient air temperatures and augment power output.

 

Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative cooling sprays water into the turbine inlet air stream where it evaporates to cool the air.

Gas turbines are often required to perform at maximum capacity on the hottest days to satisfy peak power requirements. Power output goes down when the ambient air temperature increases. Inlet cooling systems - cool the air and augment power output with less variations due to ambient conditions.

 

Chilling Coils

Inlet chilling pushes cold water through chilling coils to cool the air as it passes over those coils.

Both systems are extremely effective.

The difference being cost and return on investment. While the capital costs of installing evaporative cooling are far less than those of inlet chilling, the gains are generally much greater with inlet chilling.

 


INLET HEATING

 

Inlet Heating to prevent hoar build up on filter elements or ice formation at the turbine bellmouth.

 

Anti-Ice Rakes

2 JCP anti-ice rakes distribute heated ambient air at the filter house inlet, where it flows upstream from the first stage of the inlet filter, raising the overall temperature of combustion airflow out of the risk of icing.

 

Infra-Red Lamps

2 JCP offers a low cost solution in infra-red heating lamps which are optimally positioned within air intakes. This provides heating through the emission of infrared radiation directly onto the filter elements face area.

 

Hot Water Or Steam Coils

Steam and hot water coil solutions also heat inlet air to prevent icing for any set of operating conditions. Coil selection in terms of materials for both fins and horizontal or vertical tubes is offered to meet the requirements for optimum temperature and level of corrosion resistance.
