Fire & Gas Detection and Monitoring

Our system provides fire and gas detection, and extinguishing agent release, using an advanced distributed architecture to monitor heat and optical flame detectors and gas sensors.

 

Back-Up Safety PLC.

Our back-up safety system provides an additional level of protection for customers with project specific and/or insurance requirements. This includes a primary two-channel programmable logic controller (PLC) that is paired with a “safety partner.” The safety partner is a coprocessor that provides an isolated second channel for safety-related functions in the system.

Direct-drive Alternating Current (DAC) Start System

The Direct-drive Alternating Current (DAC) start system is a proven configuration for Solar gas turbine packages. The system initiates engine rotation, maintains engine purge speed, assists acceleration to a self-sustaining speed, and perpetuates a slow roll speed.

 

 

Fuel Systems

 

Electronic Fuel System

This pre-engineered electronic fuel module is designed as a direct replacement for the existing gas fuel system. This single-lift module system is a complete fuel system, from the package fuel inlet to the engine fuel gas manifold. The modules are available as stand-alone improvements or in conjunction with other system upgrades.

The fuel system upgrades include gas fuel module, liquid fuel module, purge system, water injection system and fuel conversion.
