  1. Frame 7F:

    A comparison test of gas turbine cleaning products on a Frame 7F in California

    Case Study: Frame 7F - Improved Cleaning Efficiency with Lower Cost

     

    ECT performed a comparison test of gas turbine cleaning products on a Frame 7F in California that is operated by a large wholesale power generation company. Read the case study

  2. Frame 6:

    ECT performed a comparison test of gas turbine cleaning hardware and compressor wash on a Frame 6

    Case Study: 4% Power Recovery by Improved Cleaning Efficiency-  ECT performed a comparison test of gas turbine cleaning hardware and compressor wash on a Frame 6 that is operated under an LTSA by an OEM for a power generation Company in California. Read the case study for yourself

  3. Siemens 501 Fog Nozzle Retrofit:

    ECT retrofit 600 fog nozzles into each of two gas turbines for an overall output gain over 7%

    Case Study: Fog Nozzle Retrofit-  ECT retrofit 600 fog nozzles into each of two gas turbines for an overall output gain over  7%.  By changing out impingement pin nozzles and reconfiguring the nozzle grid,  ECT engineered a retrofit that allowed the end user to use a fogging skid that was previously shut down due to poor performance and creating large droplet erosion.

  4. Wash Skid Upgrade:

    ECT engineered a package to upgrade the heaters and update the controls of a gas turbine wash tank.

    Case Study: Wash Tank Upgrade-  ECT engineered a package to upgrade the heaters and update the controls of a gas turbine wash tank.  The upgrade targeted an accelerated heat cycle that allows the user to improve their crank wash recoveries and reduce their crank wash time over 2 hours. See the full range of wash skids

  5. LM2500:

    ECT manufactured a custom online injection ring with removable nozzles and provided R-MC engine cleaner.

    Case Study: LM2500 Online Cleaning-  ECT manufactured a custom online injection ring with removable nozzles and provided R-MC engine cleaner.  The end user was able to maintain compressor performance between crank washes and nearly eliminate their crank wash program.

  6. Frame 7EA:

    ECT was contracted to perform a full upgrade on two wash systems for Frame 7EA units.

    Case study: Improved compressor wash efficiency with full system upgrade-  ECT was contracted to perform a full upgrade on two Frame 7EA units. The design goals were to use the existing crank wash nozzles provided by General Electric, design new online wash hardware and engineer the upgraded online/off-line wash skids.

  7. Power Augmentation Upgrade:

    ECT custom power augmentation system in Houston generates a 14% improvement in output.

    ECT custom power augmentation system in Houston generates a 14% improvement in output.

    Power Augmentation System

    ECT was contracted to provide our patented Power Augmentation System on five (5) Frame 7EA’s in Houston. The target was 2% of incoming air mass yielding an output improvement of approximately 14%. The total output was 9 megawatts on average per machine for a plant improvement totaling almost 45 megawatts. ...
