Burner Acoustic Monitor and Active Control

The Burner Acoustic Monitor (BAM) system was built to continuously monitor dynamic combustor pressure. It is a protective device that proactively adjusts the fuel system and indicates the presence of a condition that should be resolved before turbine damage occurs. This creates the opportunity to resolve an issue before failure and avoids downtime.

Power Uprates

Increasing the horsepower of a Solar gas turbine at the time of overhaul is a cost-efficient way to make business more productive. This solution provides product enhancements during overhaul, or on an exchange engine, to produce additional power output, and enhance safety, operability, reliability and durability.

Gas Compressor Restage

With more than 4,500 gas compressors installed and over 2,700 compressors restaged, Solar is positioned to offer solutions for your restage needs. Gas compressor restage is the re-configuration of a gas compressor to better match new operating conditions, and includes upgrades to the vibration and seal system. This upgrade optimizes the compressor performance and allows customers to increase process efficiencies while maintaining or improving their production targets.

Turbine Air Inlet System

Solar’s onshore air inlet filtration system enables gas turbines to operate in a broad range of land-based environments. For coastal and inland installations, contaminants vary by location and can include salt, dust, sand, industrial gases, and exhaust fumes containing oil and fuel vapors. Solar continually improves its air inlet filtration system, developing new products that enable its gas turbine engines to operate more efficiently and to extend time between off line compressor water washes.

Variable Guide Vane and Bleed Valve Actuators

This upgrade provides a complete electric solution for both SoLoNOx™ and conventional combustion engines. The 120 Vdc actuators are designed to replace existing hydraulic or pneumatic-hydraulic bleed valve, or variable guide vane actuators. This provides a consistent, tunable emission and engine controls system solution.
