Combustion turbines are durable and flexible; however, upgrades such as taller stacks or larger filter houses require new structural needs. Dürr Universal's team of gas turbine structural engineers will assess the current inlet and exhaust system design and create a solution to accommodate your new requirements.
Gas turbine plant locations that were originally built in isolated areas are now in or near neighborhoods, requiring a greater focus on acoustic performance. Therefore, gas turbine inlet and exhaust systems must be even quieter and have low restriction to flow. Often, modifying these systems to meet local noise requirements may require structural changes. Dürr Universal has structural engineers on staff to review the requirements, design approach and analysis process to develop an optimal gas turbine exhaust silencer baffle system for a wide range of loading conditions, including aero-acoustical, internal pressure and flow velocity, thermal, environmental (seismic), flow-induced vibration, and fatigue design analysis. We also design and provide platforms, ladders, supports and access doors.
