Gas Turbines - High Efficiency Combined With Ease Of Maintenance
The advent of jet propulsion as a form of prime mover during World War II spearheaded a tremendous surge in gas turbine technology which continues unabated today. As each new specification is issued for a gas turbine, the common requirements are longer life, greater reliability, and lower fuel consumption. These specifications have been met progressively and today the gas turbine is a highly reliable and efficient piece of equipment. This advanced technology has now been applied to industrial and marine installations providing potential for: -high efficiency - ease of maintenance -reliability- low maintenance costs - This paper is intended to be of a practical nature and will deal with specific hardware.
