Fuel Gas Conditioning System

Fuel Gas Conditioning System

Gas with varying compositions and dew points, coupled with advanced-technology gas turbines and increased reliability and emissions expectations have placed a greater emphasis on the need for clean fuel gas. Fuel gas conditioning systems are designed to deliver clean, dry and superheated gas to turbines, engines, and burners that meet or exceed the OEM fuel gas quality requirements. 

The Importance of a Fuel Gas Conditioning System

Even pipeline gas potentially contains impurities such as pipe scale and condensed liquids. The treatment of the gas is crucial to the performance and longevity of the gas turbines.

A fuel gas conditioning system will:

  • Increase the overall performance of the gas turbine
  • Increase the longevity of the gas turbine
  • Minimize maintenance costs
  • Reduce unscheduled downtime
  • Increase the overall reliability of the rotating equipment

Types of Impurities Removed by the Fuel Gas Conditioning System:

  • Solids: Rust, Mill Scale, Sand

            Can damage the rotor assembly in the gas turbine

  • Liquids: Water, Condensed Gas, Heavy Hydrocarbon, Lube Oil

            Can cause temperature fluctuations within the system

Process skids offer a number of advantages over field erected systems such as the following:

  • Fast Plug & Play Installation
  • Greater Quality Assurance
  • Greater Safety
  • More Mobility
  • More Cost-Effective

The Lube-Power skid-mounted system provides a modular alternative to field-erected systems.  The key advantages of a skid-mounted system provided by Lube-Power compared to a field-erected assembly include reduced lead-times, process and mechanical guarantees, plug & play ready, fully customizable and complete system function testing prior to shipment.

Lube-Power, Inc. is always passionate about meeting customers’ specific needs and requirements and that we are ready to work with you to design a system that best fits your needs.
