Combustion Turbines are durable and flexible however new designs and applications may create many challenges for the inlet and exhaust system designer.
Plant locations that were originally built in isolated areas are now in or near neighborhoods, requiring greater focus on acoustic performance, and therefore inlet and exhaust systems must provide a higher level of acoustic performance and low restriction to flow. Often there are modifications of these systems to meet local noise requirements which may require structural changes. Dürr Universal has structural engineers on staff to review requirements, design approach and analysis process for development of an optimal 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 life analysis. We also design and provide platforms, ladders, supports and access doors.
