Optimization and Upgrades
Power augmentation technologies provide the optimum balance of increased power output, minimal long-term equipment maintenance costs and maximum equipment reliability.
Direct Injection – Wet Compression
EthosEnergy provides a fully automated, PLC-controlled skid with a direct injection nozzle arrangement that delivers high reliability and a longer life span. This direct injection system uses nozzles installed directly in the turbine bell mouth and / or cone section. Direct injection of water into the compressor is designed to incorporate the correct droplet size that is evenly distributed across the compressor throat. The water injection points are located within the high velocity region which eliminates the concern for concentrated water at the blade root.
Indirect Injection – Inlet Fogging Systems
Inlet fogging systems use an array of fogging nozzles placed downstream of silencers within the inlet duct. Through an in-depth analysis of the technology traditionally used in this application, EthosEnergy has engineered a system that mitigates the design faults that involve spray nozzle positioning and over saturation of the airstream associated with most existing systems.
EthosEnergy upgrades existing fogging systems by renozzling with high performance nozzles and installing a fully automated PLC-controlled skid.
