Effect of the Off-line Wash system for Gas Turbines Ruston TB5000 in high polluted conditions
MetadataShow full item record
This work shows the effect of an Off-line wash system with water based on the case of 3 gas turbines Ruston TB5000 located in high polluted conditions like ashes in the ambient, high humidity and temperature. This research was ran making periodical measurements of the principal turbo-pump’s variables values during 1 year of operation with nonstop charge conditions around 125 mbpd (millions of barrels per day) of gas L.P. All this data were inserted in a statistical program and then analyzed to create Temp./Discharge P. ratio curves and comparing with other cases, one washed with different system in the same polluted ambient and other without washed. Due to their high polluted ambient the demand from the filter system is hard, and in some cases limited a very efficient wash system is required.
