INLET SYSTEM

Inlet system consists of

Evaporative cooler

Filter house
Compressor Bleed heating

Inlet Silencer duct


Inlet casing -IGV

Evaporative cooler

Lowering the compressor inlet temperature can be accomplished by


installing an evaporative cooler or inlet chiller in the inlet

ducting downstream of the inlet filters.

Evaporative cooling is limited to ambient temperatures and above because of the potential for icing the compressor. Effectiveness is a measure of how close the cooler exit temperature approaches the ambient wet bulb temperature. Chillers, unlike evaporative coolers, are not limited by the ambient wet bulb temperature.

Filter House
High efficiency media filter of 3 Modules, each consists of 19X4 Nos (Total 3X19X4 = 228 Nos) Number of cylinder filter element 228 Nos Number of cone filter element 228 Nos Estimated initial airflow restriction :3 mbar Pulse cycle start 5.5 mbar, Stop at 4.5mbarl Filtration : <1 micron mechanical protection of the filter housing and inlet duct sections against implosion

Inlet bleed heating

The Compressor Bleed Inlet Bleed Heating system involves recalculation of higher temperature compressor discharge air to the compressor inlet used for the following three main purposes : 1 To prevent conditions necessary for the formation of ice on the first stage stator blades. 2 To extend emission compliance to lower loads by allowing exhaust temperature control to occur at lower inlet guide vane angles. 3 To provide sufficient compressor operating margin by reducing the compressor pressure ratio and by heating the compressor inlet air.

Inlet silencer duct

the protection of the personnel against noise and temperature protection of the GT unit section against climatic agents.
