Optimizing Gas Turbine Fuel Gas Supply

The mission of this blog has always been to bring the experts around Emerson to you. Many of these folks also share their expertise in our Emerson Exchange 365 global user community and with LinkedIn posts. I’ll highlight an example I saw today.

Emerson's Rossella Mimmi


Emerson’s Rossella Mimmi published a post, Gas Conditioning: Why, When and How. In it, she opens:

Natural Gas has become the desired fuel for gas turbines used in modern power plants. Gas turbines are extremely sensitive to contaminants carry-over into the combustors, thus requires fuel gas to be treated to high level of purity for total protection and optimal operation. Gas Conditioning skids are used to clean and treat the gas to achieve the best results and ensure the highest turbine performance.

These gas conditioning skids perform the functions of removing contaminants entrained in the gas stream, superheating the gas stream above the hydrocarbon dew point, reducing pressure and maintaining tight pressure control, measuring the gas flow rate, and odorizing the gas so that it can be smelled in case of leaks.

Rossella describes the challenges of operating these skids safely, reliably and productively. To do this accurate fuel gas pressure control is critical as are overpressure safety protections.

Read the post for ways pressure regulator and other technologies can address these challenges. The Natural Gas Technologies Application Guide can help you select the right pressure regulation technologies for your application.

If this post is of interest, you may want to check out some other recent LinkedIn posts from Rossella, which include:

As you come across posts of interest here on the blog, make sure to reach out and connect with the featured expert(s) in LinkedIn. You’ll find that many share great posts like these.

You can also connect and interact with other pressure regulator experts in the Regulators group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
